The Safer Stockport Partnership (SSP), which includes Stockport Council, Greater Manchester Police and Greater Manchester Fire & Rescue service, has launched a three-month long campaign aimed at reducing crime and anti-social behaviour across Stockport.

Working in partnership with Stockport County Community Foundation, the SSP will be carrying out 12 weeks of football sessions in areas suffering from anti-social behaviour. The sessions will give the opportunity to young adults living in the Stockport area aged 11 - 16 years old to play football three evenings a week from May until the middle of August.

The Projects aims:

• To help reduce anti-social behaviour

• To engage with the local community

• To help increase physical activities in the local community

The ‘summer safety” campaign, which is running throughout the months of June, July & August, will be a series of initiatives aimed at providing the public with the information they need to protect themselves from criminal and anti-social behaviour during the holiday period whether they are staying at home or going away.

The four keys themes of the initiative are as follows:

• Safe4Summer

• Raising Awareness of ASB & Crime Prevention

• Online Safety

• Raising Community Confidence

Leon Jacobs, Chief Inspector from Greater Manchester Police, said: “By working in partnership with a number of key partners, this year’s summer campaign covers a wide variety of themes with the key focus helping to protect the residents of Stockport from being a victim of crime.”

Matthew Bailey, Assistant Community Foundation Manager from Stockport County Community Foundation, said: “This project is a great opportunity to engage with young people, helping them increase physical activity, learn new or advance football skills and help them from being involved in anti-social behaviour over the summer period.”

The Community Foundation is an important charitable organisation of Stockport County Football Club. The Foundation take’s Stockport County off the pitch and into the local community to engage children and adults in structured, safe fun and enjoyable community activities, giving the football club a huge, positive profile outside Edgeley Park. The Community Foundation works with a number of partners, football and non football in order to deliver high quality activities for local community.

Over the last 12 months the Community Foundation contacts with the local community has increased significantly. We are proud to work in partnership with the Community Safety Unit as one of our projects.

Cllr Shan Alexander, Stockport Council’s Executive Member for Safe & Resilient Communities, said: “This project is very important in supporting young people in Stockport, making sure they are able to participate in sports in a safe and positive environment. You don’t have to be good at football; every youngster is welcomed to attend these sessions.”
