Love Your Doorstep By Love Your Doorstep

We're looking to improve safety for our school children after a number of recent attacks. We want to make our local school children safer with the scheme.

Enfield Idea stage

Enfield has suffered a number of attacks/muggings of the local secondary school children in recent month. As a strong community we are passionate about putting measures in place to keep our young children feel safer and know where to seek help and assistance from. The project has been up and running successfully for over a month now and has had over 100 volunteers register. Love Your Doorstep have been getting the community involved to create patrols on school days (morning, lunch and finish) to try and eradicate these attacks. The funding will help to pay for uniforms, equipment, marketing and administration of the scheme as well as helping the scheme roll out borough wide.

What we'll deliver:

  • A rota system of parents/volunteers to patrol the main areas at school finish
  • Uniforms & Equipment for the patrols
  • Management of the scheme including a full time administrator
  • A borough wide scheme

Why it's a great idea:

The inspiration for this project is simple, we have a strong community group in Enfield and through the community sharing we have become aware of the situation. Keeping local children safe has to be one of the most important goals of any community. We as a community group have the means to make sure this scheme is success. The scheme empowers local people to help make a difference and pull together as a community for a common goal.

Steps to get it done:

  • Develop a database of volunteers that allow continious cover of the Enfield town area
  • Work with local police to ensure patrol is covering the most necessary areas
  • Look to how the scheme can be rolled out borough wide and create a priority list for rollout
  • Ensure all volunteers have been correctly briefed on patrol and legalities are covered off
