Securing Homes in Cambridgeshire Since 2001

The Work We Do

The Cambridgeshire Police Shrievalty Trust is a registered charity formed in 1999 to improve community safety in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough.

The name of the Trust reflects the fact that two organisations were primarily responsible for its creation – Cambridgeshire Constabulary and The Office of High Sheriff.  The Bobby Scheme was established in 2001 by the Cambridgeshire Police Shrievalty Trust.

Its aim is to reduce crime and fear of crime of older, vulnerable and disabled people across Cambridgeshire and Peterborough, thereby improving their quality of life, increased independence and safety.

Our Mission

To secure the homes of older, vulnerable people and domestic abuse victims in our county. To reduce the opportunities for crime in the community and reduce repeat incidents of crime.

Our Goals

To improve feeling of safety, confidence & peace of mind. To increase independence for residents wanting to stay at home. To provide support for informed choices.
To Improve home security, and therefore residents' health & wellbeing.

Our Vision

To keep older people, vulnerable people and domestic abuse victims safe and secure in their own homes with our expert advice and solutions.

WhAT WE PROVIDE FOR RESIDENTS

Our Services

The Cambridgeshire Bobby Scheme, now in its eighteenth year, has helped in excess of 31,000 older, vulnerable and disabled people who are either the victims of burglary, domestic abuse and other crimes, or who are concerned about home and personal security.  We secure the homes of these people with security devices and alarms.

How We Operate

Our approach

A skilled bobby will visit, advise and install whatever is needed in the way of locks, door chains, bolts, window alarms and more recently Ring products used in conjunction with WI-FI and smart devices.

Making a Difference

The Scheme is a crime reduction programme and our work is aimed to help victims overcome the shock of crime and restore self – confidence, health and wellbeing. Our feedback tells us that 100% of elderly victims we visit have increased feelings of security and are better able to cope with everyday life.

Guidance & Signposting

We are fully trained to advise, give guidance and signpost to other agencies. We are the 1st practical and tangible help victims receive of which there is NO other charity or service which offers this level of valuable support at no cost to the victim.

Independence & Post-Trauma Support

Our support enables many older people to live independently for longer than they otherwise might. The Scheme can reduce the rate at which elderly and domestic abuse victims of crime believe they are unsafe in their own homes and transfer to institutional or refuge care. 

The detrimental effects of moving home after such trauma are immense on any victim of any age with many out of control ripple effects. For these reasons, together with the wider crime reduction benefits, the scheme is widely acknowledged to be an effective and a beneficial programme for victims to cope and recover from their trauma.

The after-effects of our support

Following our visit victims feel empowered and confident to continue with day to day chores and return to being socially active within their community. Our visits contribute to the victims gaining confidence with the peace of mind to leave their homes in the knowledge that they are secure, thus allowing them to remain independent.

The Scheme operates throughout Cambridgeshire and Peterborough, maintaining an urgent response for victims which has significantly reduced the repeat victimisation rate of the people it has visited. Our repeat victimisation rate is less than 1%.

Agencies we work with and partners who support our charity

The importance of The Bobby Scheme is recognised by our partners. We work alongside various agencies mainly by way of referral to provide a well-rounded service to victims and residents of Cambridgeshire and Peterborough.

It costs us on average £180 to work at each home.  Being a very small charity we are continually seeking funding to support the work we do.  We would therefore welcome any financial support that you, your association or company could provide to enable us to help more of our communities’ residents.

If you would like to support us or work with us, please contact us.
