About this Event

Where is your teen right now?

Worried their behaviour has changed?

Are they spending less time with their old friends?

Have they been given money or items from a new friend?

Training to protect your child

Kent Police would like to invite you to a FREE session, aimed at parents and carers, to help safeguard young people and recognise the early warning signs that may identify involvement in knife crime, drug use or gangs.

The possibility of a young person getting involved in a gang or criminal behaviour may seem unlikely, but it’s essential that every parent and carer knows what to look out for and where to access help and support if needed.

These parent-focused sessions aim to give you the tools to help protect young people from harm. They promote the key role that parents, carers, teachers and other professionals can play to ensure a young person feels safe, supported and empowered to ask for help from someone they trust if they need to.

Each session will provide:

• everything you should know about gangs, knives and associated criminal activity

• warning signs of gang membership including changes in a young person’s behaviour

• true life stories from unique guest speakers including:

o an ex-gang member who now works with youth charity, Uprising

o the grandfather of a victim of drug use

Please reserve your space now for this informative session. Parking will be free of charge in the car park behind the Civic Centre/Stour Centre from 5.30pm. There is no need to purchase a ticket but please adhere to the parking restrictions advertised.
