Charity information

The Cambridgeshire Police Shrievalty Trust

The Trust has two main aims; 1) To supoort and run The Cambridgeshire Bobby Scheme, which is a free service to burglary victims aged 70 or more, in the county and to help older people who are not yet victims but who are at high risk and/or vulnerable. The Bobbies attend 80% of victims within 24 hours and fit door chains/peep holes/locks/window alarms etc, and most importantly reassure the victim and stay with them until they feel safe in their own home again.
2) To support The Alconbury Driving Centre, which teaches 'Motor Vehicle and Road User Studies' to year 11 students with a wide range of ability. The cost of running these lessons is supplemented by the Trust, and the Driving Centre also runs commercial enterprises such as a 'Skid Car Experience' and 'Programme 16' to help support our charitable activities. The aim is to target young people at a particularly vulnerable time in their lives, and try to reduce the accident rate on our roads and improve safety for all in the county.
