They gave out treats including crisps, sweets, juice drinks and cereal bars that have been kindly donated by Wilkos and Greggs, continuing their work to support and engage with young people and the community during lockdown.

The positive engagement scheme is a police-led initiative to engage and support young people between the ages of 10 – 18 who are either vulnerable, socially excluded or involved in crime.

Youth outreach worker Romel Davis said: “Whilst there are so many young people and their families at home, we thought it would be fitting to deliver the treats.

Some of the treats delivered this week.

“It also gives us the opportunity to check in on some of our most vulnerable children during these difficult times and bring smiles to their faces.

“It is so important that we continue to keep in contact with our young people and communities, support them and remain visible during this pandemic.

“We just have to be creative and do things differently as we move through this crisis.

“We’d like to thank both Wilkos and Greggs for their continued support. We’ve managed to cover a large area across the county including Mansfield, Stapleford, Clifton, St Ann’s and The Meadows. Without their donations, this wouldn’t have been possible.”

If you have any items that can be donated to young people or the community in general please email [email protected]

All hygiene and social distancing guidelines were followed.
