Mate Crime

At the mate crime conference in Selby on 23 June 2011 we watched some drama from Rotherham about mate crime. Mate crime is when you think someone is your mate but is not your mate. We saw a man in his flat and someone moved in portending to be his friend. Mate crime is when someone portends to help you but takes things like money from you. His friend read his pin number and took his money using his pin number.

How do you know if a friend is a friend?

A friend is someone you trust and helps you.

How would you recognize if someone is being affected by mate crime?

What would you do if mate crime is happening to you?

1 – Tell the police.
2 – Tell your safeguarding team.
3 – Use a 3rd party reporting Centre.

Are you aware of any 3rd party Reporting Centre’s in your area?

Anyone can reganize if someone is being affected by mate crime.

They can be.

1 – Family members
2 – Support Workers
3 – A&E Staff
4 – Real Friends
5 – Neighbours
6 – Someone who knows the person well
