Andrew Mitchell MP supports new measures to tackle anti-social behaviour

8th October 2010

Local MP Andrew Mitchell has met with Ian Jackson, Project Director of Police Community Clubs in Great Britain to discuss the new Anti-Social Behaviour book to be introduced in Sutton Coldfield schools.

The Police Community Clubs are releasing a new Anti-Social Behaviour resource entitled ‘No Respect: Cause and Effect’ to senior schools as a Key Stage Three Citizenship and supportive GCSE English resource from September this year.

As the MP for Sutton Coldfield Andrew Mitchell wanted to see the resource for himself and discuss Anti-Social Behaviour measures in the constituency.

The Police Community Clubs already produce a number of publications which support teachers and parents in addressing personal and social issues with children at Key Stage One and Two.

The Police Community Clubs support initiatives which help young people make the most of their potential and become responsible citizens. The organisation has a network of Young People’s Clubs across Great Britain and committee members are all serving or retired police officers.

The Clubs support projects which seek to develop children and young people as good and active citizens who can make a positive contribution to their communities. These include activities to tackle social exclusion, truancy, bullying, working with excluded pupils and many other community-based initiatives.

Andrew Mitchell MP said, “The resources the Police Community Clubs produce are an excellent means of tapping into the ideas of children and young people. The concept is innovative, focussed and at the forefront of current thinking on working with young people, promoting social inclusion and building sustainable communities. It is clear that the benefit of such resources and other work carried out by the organisation is great.”
