Created by us, a group of young people, our campaign Big Up The Bill aims to highlight good examples of police work.
We think the police should:
- Treat young people respectfully
- Use simple language to explain things
- Listen and empathise - show they care
We want to share our top tips with Police and Crime Commissioners so that all police staff develop the skills, knowledge and behaviours that will make them better at working with children – especially vulnerable children.
We know police professionals who show empathy and listen can be
a catalyst for a positive change in that young person’s life. Too often this isn't the case - and we need your help to change this.
You can help by telling us why you think your Police and Crime Commissioner should back Big Up The Bill. We'll use this message in the campaign to show how much local support we've got!
Keeping in touch
The Children’s Society would like to contact you about how you can support vulnerable children by campaigning, raising awareness and providing financial support.
