What are Scams?
Scams come in many forms; uninvited contact is received by email, letter, and telephone or in person making false promises to con victims out of money. There are many of these sorts of scams but some of the most common are fake lotteries, deceptive prize draws or sweepstakes, clairvoyants, computer scams, and romance scams. The criminals attempt to trick people with flashy, official looking documents or websites, or convincing telephone sales patter, with the aim of persuading them to send a processing or administration fee, pay postal or insurance costs, buy an overvalued product or make a premium rate phone call. Doorstep Scams are crimes carried out by bogus callers, rogue traders and unscrupulous sales people who call, often uninvited, at people's home under the guise of legitimate business or trade.
CHAMPS Academy is offering a special pilot programme to help young children going through the transition to reception, via four 30-minute 'Little CHAMPS' sessions over four weeks from 14th June till 5th July.
We have a few places available on this initial phase for families who feel their child might benefit from being part of this pilot and learning key skills to manage worries, gain confidence and feel happier. The workshops are to be attended by children with their parent/carer.
Places are limited so please book on-line or contact us as soon as possible if you would like to book your places.
