SpeakUpCIC are very grateful to have a received a very generous grant from Kent Police to pilot a buddy scheme in Thanet. There are too many vulnerable people in the area, suffering with mental health difficulties that have little to no support network. Tragically, one of our members, Delyth Andrews, was murdered in her home by people that had systematically taken advantage of her before taking her life. This scheme aims to provide a network for these people to ensure that this doesn't happen to anybody else. We're looking forward to working with the local police to reduce exploitation and abuse of vulnerable adults.
