Safety first for teens

The Streetwise partnership between Maccabi GB and the Community Security Trust has launched a personal safety campaign for young Jews.

Featuring posters at primary and secondary schools, it offers advice on keeping valuables safe and avoiding attacks. The 2012 CST report included 55 antisemitic incidents affecting those of school age, 11 involving extreme violence, assault or theft.

Streetwise manager Nathan Servi said: “Alongside the 18,000 young people we engage on a yearly basis through our personal development and personal safety workshops, we reach them through visual campaigns. With a huge increase in young people owning electronic hand-held devices, we want to make sure they remain safe.”
