SCAMS: Briefing For Professionals/Volunteers

The SAFER Project delivered by West Yorkshire Trading Standards works to educate and empower older and vulnerable people to spot scams and deal confidently with doorstep callers to protect themselves from becoming victims.

SAFER – Scams and Fraud Education for Residents

This special one hour briefing is aimed at professionals and volunteers who support and come into contact with older and vulnerable residents.

The session will equip professionals and volunteers with the knowledge to help older and vulnerable people to identify scams and doorstep crime, understand the impact that such activity can have on the physical and mental wellbeing of victims and enable them to support those who may have already fallen victim.

Scams and frauds are fast becoming the crime of the 21st Century, with many isolated and vulnerable older people being the main target of mass marketing scams, nuisance callers, cowboy builders and distraction burglaries.

The SAFER Project delivered by West Yorkshire Trading Standards works to support and empower older and vulnerable people to spot scams and deal confidently with doorstep callers to protect themselves from becoming victims.
