Prevent Tragedies

Please find a link attached for the Awareness Campaign for Families - Prevent Tragedies, which is aimed at families/mothers which has been sent by the West Yorkshire Police.

The adverts highlight the strong bond between a mother and daughter and how that relationship can have a powerful influence on a young woman and the decisions she makes. Theyencourage mothers to have open discussions with their daughters about issues such as travelling to Syria and what they are viewing online.

The campaign recognises that it is mothers who often spot changes in behaviour or signs someone may be considering travelling to a conflict that millions are desperate to escape.

By encouraging mothers to have an open dialogue with their daughters, it is hoped that potential interest in travelling to Syria will be picked up at an early stage and that the mother will be able to take action, either by challenging the misconceptions or seeking help from other agencies, including the police.
