SCLT Outreach Team Visit Dhek Bhal in Bristol
Wednesday 26th March, saw the SCLT Minorities Outreach Team paying a visit to the highly acclaimed Dhek Bhal community group at Barton Hill Settlement in Bristol, to give a crime busting presentation to the group.
The presentation was lead by the Outreach Team leader, Mr Roger Ibrahim and featured advice on avoiding doorstep crime, such as bogus callers and rogue trading, as well as tips on general scams and cons which may come to the attention of their potential victims by way of telephone, e-mail or the traditional postal system.
The presentation was translated from English into the languages of the group by a specially trained interpreter. Following the presentation, all parties present enjoyed a wonderful South Asian lunch, which proved to be a great time for networking and some individual advice for the attendees.
Roger Ibrahim is the leader of the SCLT Minorities Outreach Team, he said, "Dhek Bhal is a great group with a truly wonderful sense of community. I have enjoyed passing the SCLT safety message to the group and joining them for a lovely lunch. I have taken a few expressions of interest already today, about future presentations for other groups. So if you are a member of s community group of any kind and would like a safety presentation, get in touch today"
