More than 50 child carers attended the safety-awareness training workshop in Surrey Park at the end of November. The workshop formed part of the 16 Days of Activism for No Violence Against Women & Children Campaign, hosted by HV CID & SAPS Claremont.
HV CID manager Jenni Coleman was the brainchild behind this initiative and hosted a similar workshop last year. Jenni said the HV CID acknowledges that the carers are a very important part of the Harfield Community and feel it is important to equip the women in charge of looking after our children with tools and information to keep themselves and the children safe.
Sergeant Lutchmee Chetty of the Claremont police highlighted some practical tips for the carers, on how to be safe and more aware of their surroundings at all times. She urged them to take note and immediately report any incidences and suspicious vehicles or people in the area.
Norgarb Properties is very proud to have had the opportunity to sponsor this amazing initiative. The Carers loved our little goodie bags, refreshments and emergency card with useful emergency contact numbers which we provided to them. They definitely found the session informative and inspiring.
Thank you to Jenni Coleman who worked tirelessly in making this workshop such a success. To Sergeant Chetty for running the course and to Har-Lyn Neighbourhood Watch and Fidelity ADT who also sent volunteers to assist. We are grateful for your efforts and contribution to the Harfield Village Community.
