Fearless

“Fearless” is a website aimed at young people to access non-judgemental information and advice about crime and criminality, set up by Crimestoppers.

The ContinU Trust and Safer Wyre Forest are meeting shortly with Crimestoppers to see how “Fearless” could be incorporated into high schools across Wyre Forest.

In the meantime to find out more information about “Fearless” please visit their website www.fearless.org

Reporting Crime

www.fearless.org
This website is Crimestoppers dedicated youth service, designed and developed to encourage and empower young people to make their community a safer place. Providing information and advice about crimes that might affect them, the fearless website and associated resources look to challenge and stimulate debate whilst educating young people about the ways that they can pass on information to us 100% anonymously.

www.youandco.org.uk
You and Co is Victim’s Support youth programme that helps young people cope with the impact and effects of crime. They are separate from other agencies like the police and will only work with these other agencies if you ask them to. The site covers issues such as bullying, your rights, different coping strategies and an interactive courtroom.
