Why not enter the MONSTER RACE for SAFE! Support for Young People Affected by Crime - http://www.safeproject.org.uk/
SAFE! Support for Young People Affected by Crime is a local charity that supports young people aged between 8-25, throughout the Thames Valley who have been victims of crime or bullying. SAFE! supports young people with an enormous range of experiences, from those who have been seriously bullied at school, to experiences of physical assault or theft, through to those children recovering from the effects of witnessing sustained and serious domestic abuse and those who have been victims of sexual assault or abuse.
Without the support that SAFE! offers these young people, their experience can lead to further problems including absence from school or work, and post-traumatic stress and research also indicates that an experience of victimization can lead to offending behaviour later on in life. SAFE! works to break this cycle and champions the long term wellbeing of these young victims at a crucial time in their development by offering individually tailored sessions with a professional worker who supports the young person by using protective behaviours and restorative justice approaches. The workers help the young people develop coping strategies for when they feel unsafe and develop a support network around the young person that they can utilise when needed.
SAFE! relies heavily on funding and charitable donations so that they can reach all young people and families affected by crime. Why not take part in the Monster Race to raise money for SAFE! to enable this support to continue?!
