The Police Community Clubs of Great Britain (PCCGB) was founded by four Metropolitan Police Officers in 1992, with the initial idea of using boxing gyms to provide young people with a safe alternative to roaming the streets. The PCCGB now runs a network of young people’s clubs that extends across the UK, offering a range of activities and learning opportunities. Each club has a serving or retired police officer or member of the Home Office serving on its committee.
The PCCGB now also offers a range of education resources and publications produced in partnership with Community Initiatives Associates. These include Barney & Echo primary school PSHE storybooks, the No Respect: Cause and Effect high school anti-social behaviour education project, and Citizenship Magazine.
