Snapshot: Good neighbours

Sarah Teather, Liberal Democrat MP for Brent East, shows support for a Crime Concern project in London that urges people to inform on local drug dealers. The Safe & Sound Community Safety Project, on the South Kilburn estate, targets drug dealers working on the estate through the message "Are Your Neighbours Working From Home?". It encourages people to report the dealers anonymously to Crimestoppers. With Teather are (left to right) Joseph Awosika, project director of Community Careers Centre; Frances Ampiah-Kwofi, resident 'champion'; a local resident; and Arthur Carney, the manager of the concierge team on the South Kilburn estate. Free home security assessments are offered by the project and free security equipment is given out where required. Funded by the Government's New Deal for Communities programme, Safe & Sound also offers a mentoring scheme to raise self-esteem among disadvantaged young people, as well as self-defence and assertiveness classes for the over-50s, women's groups and a men's group.
