Basildon CSP - Early Intervention and Prevention

Basildon CSP has worked to develop an early intervention and prevention programme to deliver key community safety messages to young people.

This is to assist young people in making positive and well informed choices from an early age. The CSP also holds sessions throughout the year to deliver the same key messages to parents.

Crucial Crew

Crucial Crew is an innovative and interactive way of delivering personal and safety education messages to Year 6 children (10/11 year olds) to support their transition to secondary school.

More recently the awareness raising project has been adapted to equip young people with the tools and skills they need to identify and recognise what a healthy relationship looks like, understand the risks associated with being involved in gang related activity and grooming.

The event was delivered for the fifth consecutive year to just over 930 young people across the Borough, over an eight week period throughout January, February and March 2017.

Further sessions will be held early 2018 with invitations being sent to schools closer to the time.

Risky Behaviour Awareness Sessions

The Risky Behaviour sessions aim to raise awareness amongst parents, carers and professionals of the very real risks young people face. The format consists of the delivery of one hour presentations covering gangs and online safety.

It is recognised by the CSP that it is just as imperative to offer parents the opportunity to hear these messages as it is for the young people.

Dates for 2017 session are as follows:

Monday 21st August

Tuesday 22nd August

Wednesday 6th September

Walk Online Roadshows

Walk Online is commissioned to raise awareness to young people about the potential dangers they face when using the internet. The roadshows aim to highlight issues that young people are not aware of, including how easily they can be exploited through well-known online games and apps.

The content illustrates exactly how these sites are used to identify and groom young people and how they can be alert to these risks, knowing how to identify and report them.

Roadshows were delivered for the second consecutive year to 828 Year 5 school children in November 2016.

Further roadshows will be delivered throughout the year.
