Welcome to the Police Community Clubs of Great Britain (PCCGB)
Thank you for taking the time to learn more about what we do and why we do it.
The PCCGB was founded 15 years ago by a group of Metropolitan Police Officers who recognised the huge benefits to be gained by supporting young people from an early age. Benefits such as steering a young person away from crime, drug or alcohol misuse. Benefits such as leading a fit and healthy lifestyle and respecting the environment. Benefits such as making the most of their personal potential and becoming an active responsible citizen.
It can be argued that instilling these values is a job for parents, schools, police and other support agencies and we recognise that. Our aim is to help by providing activities, resources and programmes to support what they do. This includes a whole series of activity books that we provide free to parents and primary schools, knife and gang crime education packages, school holiday activity programmes and sports coaching.
We are constantly investing to provide new resources. In 2016 we will launch our new Hate Crime Pack which includes work on anti radicalisation and education to encourage strong safe communities.
All of our work is provided free of charge. We want to encourage parents to read our activity books with their children, schools to build activities into lessons, police officers to use their experience in delivering our programmes, and volunteers to have the materials they need to deliver community interventions.
We already reach a lot of people but we want to reach a lot more. We co-ordinate a network of 40 Community Clubs around the UK that deliver daily activities, have distributed over 300,000 activity books to parents and schools and project managed large education programmes on serious crime issues such as knife and gun crime. With your help we can do much more.
We are asking for your support by taking out a monthly subscription of £25 or an annual subscription of £280.
Your business will receive:
- A framed certificate of thanks for your support to the Police Community Clubs of Great Britain.
- Quarterly copies of our magazine ‘Community Aware’ for your reception areas.
- We will also supply a local school of your choice with 40 copies of our Stranger Danger booklet.
The booklets will be delivered with a letter of thanks for your company’s donation. Most importantly however, your business will be helping to educate and inform thousands of young people, keeping them away from harm and creating stronger communities for everyone.
We will provide regular updates on this website and through an e-newsletter about all of the work your subscription is supporting so you can see the difference you are helping to make. Your subscription could save lives and certainly change lives. Please click here to download our Standing Order form.
