Sharing Information: SAFER Project

Safina from the West Yorkshire Trading Standards SAFER Project has been joining us during our regular Zoom and telephone sessions to provide information and answer questions on how we can keep safe from scammers targeting our post, emails, or messages, and discuss things we should be aware of that may catch us out.

These sessions have been really interesting and informative and there are further sessions planned in March & April, some of which are follow up sessions which will also cover the subject of Doorstep Crime.

Here are some useful links containing information from the sessions:
