Supported by the Derbyshire Police and Crime Commissioner’s Vulnerability Fund, 1st June 2021
Working alongside statutory and community based organisations, including the Police and The Bureau in Glossop, the “Connect Against Crime Project” provides refurbished IT equipment and crime safety advice to vulnerable people, families and community groups in the High Peak, thereby bridging the ‘digital divide’.
People identified by our community partners as vulnerable are provided with the opportunity to become Volunteer Refurbishers and positively engage and develop their skills within a supported group setting. This raises their own awareness of cybercrime, boosts their confidence and helps develop a sense of community belonging.
We network with local businesses and individuals as a source of unwanted devices which we refurbish and redistribute. We use social media platforms to publicise information about the project and disseminate further information about cyber safety.
