Consumer Council

Become a Scamwise Champion

In June 2018, the PSNI invited The Consumer Council to develop resources for the uniformed sector to learn about scams, how young consumers can protect themselves as well as passing this new knowledge to their family, friends, schoolmates, other Group members, neighbours and people living in their community.

The Consumer Council agreed to work in partnership with the uniformed sector to develop a resource that Leaders could deliver to the different age groups ranging from 10 upwards, with a number of challenges to be completed.
