Crucial Crew is a national scheme that has been run by Ipswich Borough Council since 1994. It is delivered to 10 and 11 year olds from across Ipswich and runs for a fortnight in June every year. The aim of Crucial Crew is to provide a fun and stimulating environment for children to learn to:

  • become more aware of personal safety;
  • learn how to react correctly to dangerous and threatening situations;
  • understand the role the emergency support services play and how and when to contact them;
  • be aware of their own actions and the safety of others.

This year club members provided a total of 222.5 hours of voluntary work (equivalent to approx 5.5 man/wks) spread over 10 working days from 05 – 16 June. 13 members and 4 partners from our Club volunteered (31 full days and 7 half-days) Approx 1440 children passed through the doors from 28 schools in the Ipswich area.
