You may be aware of the recent incidents reported recently in Ipswich when a man has tried to get a child into his car by claiming that he was a taxi driver and had been asked to take them home.

The police are aware but we would like to reinforce the message of not getting in the car of an unknown adult.

If you have any concerns regarding similar situations you are asked to call the police directly on 101 or 999 in an emergency.

The University of Suffolk are working alongside the Ipswich Opportunity Area to measure young people’s participation in social action.

Youth social action is young people taking practical action to help others. To create positive social change that is of benefit to the wider community as well as themselves.

By identifying whether young people are engaging in social action, and how many are participating, the Ipswich Opportunity Area will be able to evaluate the effectiveness of current interventions in engaging young people and identify areas of need for social action programmes across Ipswich.

We would like to encourage young people to take the time to fill in this short anonymous survey and have a chance to win a £20 online voucher as a result of taking part:

If you have any further questions regarding the survey, please contact Katie Tyrrell at the University of Suffolk: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., for more information about Youth Social Action visit:
