The Police Community Clubs of Great Britain (PCCGB) was founded by four Metropolitan Officers in 2000 with the initial idea of using boxing clubs to provide young people with a safe alternative to roaming the streets. Last year over 450,000 children were bullied in school. In response to this, the PCCGB engaged in a national initiative to ensure children between the ages of 7 and 11 are educated about the dangers of bullying and vandalism. This program was developed to support teachers and parents in addressing important issues. The PCCGB have also designed a 56 page young person’s self help guide called ‘Barney and Echo - a friendship made.’ The Foundation recently awarded £2,100 to provide an Anti-Bullying safety programme in 3 primary schools in the City of Bristol.
