Eyes and Ears – a programme for the community
The Community Eyes and Ears programme provides an ideal platform for people of all ages to become more aware of the issues that can undermine personal safety and thereby emotional wellbeing but at the same time gain an understanding of how they can make a difference to their own lives and those around them. This may simply be a matter of spotting the signs that all may not be well with a neighbour, colleague, friend and knowing how to report potential concerns.

From the Community programme, Eyes and Ears For Schools has developed which supports the Relationships and Health Education curriculum. Although this is tailored towards primary schools, there is a bespoke module for secondary schools that addresses the theme of gaming and gambling. The teaching materials are FREE to download and have been produced by East Cambridgeshire District Council in conjunction with Cambridgeshire Police Children and Young People’s team as well as Cambridgeshire PSHE Service with the aim of facilitating schools to raise awareness of a variety of risk-taking behaviours.
