About Gloucestershire Crimestoppers
 
Gloucestershire Crimestoppers logo
Crimestoppers is the only independent charity in the UK to help fight crime. It is a national organisation with regional arms. The Gloucestershire Crimestoppers Committee has been running for the last twenty years and strongly believes that people should be able to live without the fear of crime.

Crimestoppers makes it possible for anyone with information on any crime type to report it anonymously 24 hours a day, 365 days of the year, by phone or online – they are only interested in what you know, not who you are! They also have a youth brand for those aged 11 upwards. Fearless.org is a site where young people can access non-judgemental information and advice about crime and criminality. It provides them with a safe place to give information about crime - 100% anonymously.

The Gloucestershire Committee is strong, with very committed members, who all give their time for free. They run a tight ship and use funds wisely on initiatives that create impact, with the support of the Regional Manager.

Most recently this has included:
• Fearless from Knife Crime prevent sessions going into Secondary Schools
• An Ambassador programme – asking local businesses and organisations to join us in raising awareness
• Switch on your lights for safe streets – a burglary campaign which provided prevention advice and raised awareness of Crimestoppers across the county
