Join Our Community Workshop in Norwich: Take Five to Stop Fraud

Home Instead Norwich invites you to our Community Awareness Workshop. Learn to safeguard yourself and your loved ones against fraud.

Protecting our community, especially our older adults, from fraudsters and scammers is a top priority. Staying vigilant and being aware of common scams is crucial to ensure everyone’s wellbeing and security. At Home Instead Norwich, we understand that education is one of the most potent weapons against deception. That is why we are thrilled to announce the upcoming Scam & Fraud Protection Workshop, a community initiative geared towards empowering and protecting vulnerable adults and their support network.

We’ve organised this important workshop in alignment with the national Take Five to Stop Fraud campaign, which provides straightforward advice to protect against financial fraud.

You’re invited to join us at our workshop

All are welcome


Wednesday 19th June 2024

We invite you to join us on Wednesday 19th June 2024, at the Memory Lane Cafe within St Peter’s Church Hall, Cringleford, for an informative afternoon learning about the different guises and examples of fraud and the tools to combat them. 

Book your slot:

Our sessions, running between 2 pm and 4 pm, will engage you in conversations about varied scams, from the deceptions lurking in emails to those impersonating trusted organisations over the phone.  To reserve your place for this workshop, please get in touch with St. Peter’s Church, Cringleford, by emailing at [email protected] or calling 01603 259138.

Chris, our local owner of Home Instead Norwich, shared his thoughts about the workshop and importance of similar initiatives.

“Scams and fraud can be devastating,” he remarked. “Apart from the financial toll, they can inflict significant emotional stress, leaving the affected person feeling anxious. Through public education programmes like this workshop, we aim to equip our community with the knowledge to identify and protect against the attempts of fraudsters, encouraging everyone to stop and reflect before taking action.”

The workshop comes at a crucial time when fraudulent schemes are pervasive, and taking a moment to think can make all the difference. 

Take Five’s campaign underscores the power of pausing to scrutinise whether a request for personal or financial information is legitimate. It stresses the ease with which anyone can forget to apply common sense when under pressure and urges everyone not to act without pausing first. The three steps are Stop, Challenge and Protect.

Our workshop aligns with the campaign’s ethos, and we aspire to create an environment where everyone, including those in caregiving roles, can learn and pass on knowledge, forming a shield around those most susceptible. By coming together, we can help protect against financial fraud, offering peace of mind to those we care for and care about.
