The volunteer committee for Crimestoppers in North Yorkshire and York has this month recruited their first Community Ambassador: security, training and support services company Eboracum UK Limited.
The independent charity’s Community Ambassador Programme is designed to increase awareness of Crimestoppers through partnership with businesses, public authorities, other charities and agencies. Acting as our Ambassadors, they enable Crimestoppers to spread the word about our unique service guaranteeing anonymity to help protect people, places and communities from crime.
While we are gradually easing out of lockdown, Crimestoppers is currently appealing for people to report anonymously what they know about crime against commercial outlets in a campaign called #ClosedtoCrime. Our Community Ambassador, Eboracum UK Limited, will connect with communities and companies to raise awareness of the campaign and to drive people to report what they know about crime 100% anonymously.
“We’re delighted to announce Eboracum UK Limited as our first Community Ambassador for North Yorkshire and York. The range of services the business provides means they’re ideally placed to promote the work of our charity. They share our values and belief that everyone should feel safe from crime. They’re a trusted organisation who engage with members of the public on a regular basis, with a great team on the ground. I’m excited to work with them and to support their promotion of our charity with local communities. This will also help local businesses at this time who, while being closed due to the pandemic, may have had their premises interfered with by criminals.
“I’m pleased our North Yorkshire Crimestoppers’ volunteer committee has gone from strength to strength since the appointment of John Dobbin as Chair. With a variety of passionate volunteers, and now our first Community Ambassador, Crimestoppers is now even better placed to raise awareness of our charity to the communities that need us the most.”Gemma Gibbs, Crimestoppers Yorkshire & the Humber Regional Manager
“It is a privilege to be a Crimestoppers’ Community Ambassador. We see this as an accolade as well as a partnership arrangement. On both a company and personal level, we can further spread the word and awareness of the great work that the charity is doing. I feel that our company is well placed to pass on these important messages to the community about an easy, anonymous way to report information about crime.
“Our approach to this role is to empower our own team members to actively talk about Crimestoppers when engaging with people, and to align ourselves with local Crimestoppers’ campaigns.”Carl Nickson, Managing Director and founder of Eboracum UK Limited
