Do you need Prevent information for your building or offices?

As we all start to move back into offices The Multi Agency Prevent Group ask you all to have a look around your buildings to see what Prevent related posters are displayed on the walls.

The Multi Agency Prevent Group are planning to get some of the Tom series of posters printed to be displayed across buildings and for organisations to display. There are also Communities Defeat Terrorism posters that were due to go out March 2020 available too.

The Multi Agency Prevent Group will also be reiterating the run, hide, tell message – posted monthly on social media we would like this to compliment that with posters in buildings.

The Multi Agency Prevent Group ask you all to let them know what posters you have regarding Prevent (if any) and let them know if you would like/need any then.  The Multi Agency Prevent Group will then put together packs for groups/organisations for their buildings and offices.

Plans for a new creative workspace on Grimsby docks have been released as they head into the planning application process.

World renowned conservation architects and historic buildings consultants, Donald Insall Associates, were appointed last year to develop plans to create the new workspace, and a planning application has now been submitted to redevelop a number of buildings in the Fish Dock area of Grimsby as part of the Grimsby Creates programme

Proposals have now come forward to transform Buildings 4, 8, 9, 10 and 11 on Auckland Road and Building 16 on Fish Dock Road into a new space for creative individuals and businesses, which will incorporate studio space as well as a communal space for art installations and exhibitions.

The design has been split into phases, with the first section being for buildings 8, 9 and 10 in the current funding round. Future development will depend on securing additional funding.

Humber Modern Slavery Partnership New ‘Anywhere Kids’ animation

From Humber Modern Slavery Partnership:

The Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner (OPCC) for Humberside has teamed up with the Humber Modern Slavery Partnership and local award-winning production company My Pockets to produce an animation and resource pack for parents, teachers and carers to educate 10–12 year-olds on the dangers of Child Criminal Exploitation.

‘Anywhere Kids’ uses aspects of real stories from real victims in our area to tell the story of how young people are groomed, coerced and trapped into exploitation such as drug dealing, forced criminality and sexual exploitation, and seeks to open a dialogue with younger children about some of the dangers they may face online or in person and how they might protect themselves from being targeted by exploiters and organised criminal gangs.

The animation, called ‘Anywhere Kids’ is also the second stage of the Not In Our Community 5-in-5 campaign bringing new and exciting, locally co-produced resources launched across the Humberside Police force area every week over 5 weeks. #5in5 Not In Our Community is a local campaign, funded and overseen by the OPCC, that aims to raise awareness of child exploitation, both criminal and sexual. In addition to a successful social media campaign, resources and stories are produced based on real life events that can be used throughout personal, educational and professional settings, to raise awareness across communities and help protect our young people.

We are currently developing a resource pack for teachers to accompany the film that will be launched with schools in September this year. If anyone would like more information please do get in touch with me. You can view and share the full ‘Anywhere Kids’ film on YouTube HERE
