Campaign launched to combat UK burglary

ADT Fire And Security : 21 March, 2014  (Company News)
UK security company joins crime victim charity in a campaign to reduce the effects of burglary through free crime prevention schemes
Campaign launched to combat UK burglary

ADT has joined forces with independent charity Victim Support to launch the Take No More campaign to help tackle burglary. Official figures show that more than 630,000 homes are broken into each year – with the numbers rising in many areas of England and Wales. The Take No More campaign aims to tackle the high level of property crime through a targeted three-year campaign.

ADT and Victim Support will work together to run free crime prevention schemes for householders; increase awareness and take-up of support services for burglary victims; and campaign to ensure that those victims get justice in court.  

Mark Shaw, Residential Business Director of ADT, said: “Working with Victim Support is a natural partnership for ADT as both see the effects of burglary through the thousands of victims we help every year.

Domestic burglary is a high volume crime, but is wrongly perceived as being just one of those things, we want to change this.

ADT strongly believes that working with Victim Support will help to provide long term solutions and could form a real ‘step-change’ in the way that people react and respond to burglary.”

Adam Pemberton, Assistant Chief Executive of Victim Support, said: "We know from speaking to thousands of victims of burglary every year that many of them feel traumatised and anxious in their own home long after the incident has happened. The full impact of this often very distressing crime is not widely understood so we work to ensure its victims get the best possible support.

Our partnership with ADT will help Victim Support to help burglary victims and to prevent homes from being burgled in the first place. Anyone can support our work by making a donation to Take No More and by supporting this campaign.”

This multi-faceted anti burglary campaign, will launch in April with in-depth new research showing the impact that burglary has on victims. The campaign will also include: stakeholder engagement to PCCs and MPs; direct communications to customers and victims; as well as a high profile PR, Digital and Social Media campaign.

The Take No More campaign pledges to raise £250,000 and the money raised will help the charity’s volunteers to offer more support to victims of burglary and help them to move on from the crime.

Be part of the Take No More campaign by raising funds for Victim Support to help burglary victims. A gift of £10 will help the charity to respond to the immediate needs of burglary victims, but whatever you can give will help. To donate £10 text CALL10 £10 (or another amount) to 70070
