Crimestoppers is calling for London business people to join them in a bid to help fight crime in the capital.
The independent crime-fighting charity hopes to enrol new volunteers to its London Working Group, which is a team formed of individuals with marketing, campaigns, PR, digital, networking and fundraising expertise.
The group will work alongside the charity’s Regional Manager for London to advise, and strategically deliver Crimestoppers’ work in the capital.
Regan Hook, Regional Manager for Crimestoppers London and co-ordinator of the London Working Group, said: “Our new unique high-level group will work with law enforcement, business and the community to help raise awareness of our services across London and run targeted campaigns to tackle issues such as gang crime, fraud and burglary.
“Crime affects everybody and this is a fantastic opportunity to use your skills and experience to make a difference.”
Crimestoppers, founded by Lord Ashcroft in 1988, operates a 0800 555 111 telephone number and website www.crimestoppers-uk.org, allowing people to pass on information about crimes anonymously.
The Charity currently has over 600 volunteers across the UK who help to raise awareness, and educate the public about crime.
Ms Hook added: “All our volunteers find the work that they do with Crimestoppers hugely satisfying and fulfilling.
“As well as helping to keep London communities safe, the benefits for our volunteers include opportunities to help forge links with the private sector and business crime networks, help generate partnerships and the potential to enhance their CV.”
