Why Donate?

Cambridgeshire Bobby Scheme is a small charity operating across Cambridgeshire and Peterborough. We rely upon donations to continue to provide a service and therefore the support and generosity of people is crucial. We can only do our work with your help.

Your gift will make a real difference to the lives of older, vulnerable and disabled residents of the county. Older and vulnerable people are often targeted by criminals because of their perceived or actual vulnerability. Crime is a serious problem for them because of the severe impact it has, but fear of crime can be just as big a problem. Feeling unsafe or at risk can have a serious negative impact on peoples’ health, their wellbeing and can leave them isolated and unable to participate socially and economically in their communities. As one person
said “ What is the point of living longer if most of the time you live in fear”.
The Bobby Scheme does help people feel safer, more secure, more reassured and more confident.
