We have also negotiated a special B&B room rate of £60 per night but you have to book it direct through the manager Laura to get the special price. 01474 823333

What a way to end the evening and no taxi needed - it could be cheaper and more enjoyable to stay over.

THE TRUST                                                                   


Streetcops was set up back in 2005 by two young Medway Police Officers.

They noted that if there was something for young people to do after school it would stop the gangs forming.

They also noted that a lot of the local clubs were in need of help financially to buy new equipment.

So, the two officers used their contacts with local coucilors and set up the trust.

To raise money they decided to run a dinner dance/ ball .

This was a great success and is now run every year (see below). 

The trust has also been supported by the Mayor's Fund .


               

AIMS OF THE TRUST 

To:

  • Promote crime prevention and crime reduction measures.
  • Protect people and property.

SUCCESSFUL APPLICATION !
We recently received an application from the Salvation Army in Medway, who were trying to set up literacy classes for adults who are disadvantaged through being unable to read and write.
The application was supported by the local neighbourhood policing team, and was awarded £500 set-up costs by Streetcops Trust.

No photos available, but we have had the following update from The Salvation Army:
'The £500 donation we received from Streetcops has enabled us to get our adult literacy project up and running. We have an excellent qualified teacher (Heather) who works from 10 am until 1.30pm each Monday morning here at the Salvation Army with 3 regular gentleman. We initially made up packs for the students with notepads, pens, rulers etc and Blacks Writing Dictionaries which are specially designed for adult learners. 
Since then we have purchased a set of specially designed easy reading books for adult learners which Heather is using with all of them. 
All 4 men are making excellent progress - one now has a consistently, recognisable signature for the first time in his life, at the age of 61 - which is because they each receive individual attention and are not being taught as part of a group.

The biggest pleasure for us is to see how the men's self esteem and confidence has improved. We have not had to pay rent to the Salvation Army for a room or heating as we are operating at the same time as our unemployment workshop so our money is lasting longer than anticipated!'

Isn't it nice to see how such a relatively small donation can make such a difference?




Successful Application !
Streetcops were pleased to support an application from Strood Youth Club for the purchase of musical instruments. 
 The Trust was impressed with the effort from the staff and young people at the centre to develop their music production and recording capability.
