We're a Friends Against Scams partner working to educate and protect people, empowering everyone to take a stand against scams.

Friends Against Scams is designed to inspire action, highlight the scale of the problem, change the perceptions of why people fall for scams and make scams a community, regional and national topic.

Safer Communties is an official partner in the delivery of Friends Against Scams awareness sessions. We educate people so they can learn about the different types of scams, how to spot them, and support themselves and others.  With increased knowledge and awareness, people can make scams part of everyday conversation with their family, friends and neighbours, which will enable them to protect themselves and others.

 

Safer Communities works as an advocate for victims of fraud, to educate people across the area about the most recent scams, the impact of this type of crime and how people can protect themselves.
