Safer Neighbourhood Annual Challenge (SNAC)

Every year, Hammersmith & Fulham Police run an exciting programme to get young people involved in working towards community safety. This programme is the Safer Neighbourhood Annual Challenge (SNAC). Groups of young people (aged between 5 and 19) are challenged to complete their own project for community safety. See below for last years' winners. It's a great way for young people to learn about community safety, feel empowered and meet other young people. There are some great prizes too!

We at H&F BME believe it is important for as many young people from ethnic minorities to be included as possible. Therefore, we have teamed up with Hammersmith and Fulham police and Refugee Advice and Support Centre, to organise a session to introduce SNAC. Chief Inspector John Sutherland will come along to tell young people how they can get involved. We will end the session with music and refreshments, with time for socializing. This session will take place on Thursday 18th of January, from 6 - 7.30pm, at Palingswick House.

You can also find out more at: www.thesnac.com. If your group offers services to young people, please bring them along to this session to find out how to get involved, and to meet other young people!
