Preston’s Good Neighbour Network recently held their latest networking and learning event.
Led by PC Stuart Rutlidge from the Diversity Unit at Preston Police and Debs Bradshaw, Trainer and External Liaison Officer from Lancashire Adult Learning, they set about tackling the complicated question – who is vulnerable and what can we do?
Stuart and Debs discussed the question with participants, sending out a strong message that feelings of vulnerability are directly attributed to the actions of other people. In the meeting, participants examined several cases studies to show how they could help if someone they knew needed support.
They need more support though and are looking for people who care about where they live to take an active role in their neighbourhood.
They ask if you care about your area and want to make it a better place you can join other like-minded people who want to make the neighbourhood cleaner, safer, healthier and stronger.
Being a good neighbour is not time consuming but it will make difference to your neighbourhood and most importantly the people who live there!
