Additional commentary:

  • wardens undertook training with Change Grow Live in administering Naloxone, in instance where someone has taken a drugs overdose. That same afternoon, one warden came across a male off the High Street who had lost consciousness as a result of opiate use. The warden quickly obtained a Naloxone kit from local pharmacy and administered a dose whilst waiting for paramedics to arrive. This quick thinking and calm response saved the life of the individual and their actions have been praised locally. All wardens have been issued with Naloxone kits which they carry daily
  • wardens have continued to engage with street homeless individuals as they come to notice in various locations across the town. As well as establishing individual’s status, signposting information given and referrals to local partners agencies for support and assistance
  • ongoing monitoring of tents that have been sighted in local park areas, engaging with individuals, and liaising with partners
  • regular engagement with pupils at The Littlehampton Academy via presence during morning school runs. This is an ongoing activity during term times to provide visibility, reassurance and engagement with pupils, staff, and parents
  • patrols and engagement with residents near Rope Walk following reports of anti-social behaviour. Ongoing liaison with local PCSOs and the council’s ASB team
  • attendance at the Town Show to provide visibility and engagement with residents, visitors, community groups and clubs
  • drop in surgery sessions held at both the library and Morrisons supermarket to engage with residents and an opportunity for members of the public to talk to Wardens about any issues or concerns they have. Signposting and general advice given
  • 'digital inclusion’ sessions held at Age UK
  • regular patrols around the River Walk following reports of anti-social behaviour, providing visible presence and reassurance to residents. Engagement with a number of residents
  • several requests made to cyclists to dismount in ‘no cycling’ areas; each complied
  • aid given to an elderly gentleman who suffered a fall along the dog walk in Wick and was shaken and disoriented as a result. Wardens assisted him back to his home where his son thanked them for their help
  • regular patrols around hot spot locations to identify and address any issues, and to pass information to relevant agencies
  • wardens involved in deescalating a couple of incidents in the High Street where drunk individuals had become agitated and vocal. These incidents were resolved quickly and without further concern. One individual approached a warden afterwards to apologise for their behaviour
  • warden has taken the lead in engaging with Arun Youth Projects to provide support to young people and assist with youth activities
  • due to interactions with the local street community, and others, Wardens have identified prevalence of a specific drug type. Information has been shared with the relevant agencies for information and to reduce related harm
