Where is your child tonight project?
We have joined forces with a number of agencies to launch a campaign to urge parents to be aware of where their children are, and to promote a range of activities that are offered to local young people to keep them busy. We all want to keep our children safe. However, without supervision they may get involved in illegal activities such as underage drinking. The simplest way to prevent this is by asking where your child is, what they are up to, and what company they are keeping.
About the project
The Where is your child tonight? project is run in partnership with Lichfield District Safer Community Partnership, Staffordshire County Council, Staffordshire Police, T3 and CRI.
To help prevent anti-social behaviour, we run lots of activities for young people across Burntwood and Lichfield – from dance and trampolining, to football and streetcheer. Click here for a full list of activities.
The low cost activities are offered through Lichfield District Council’s Positive Futures, which is funded by the council and the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner and Lichfield District Safer Community Partnership.
