Conor hosted an event at the House of Commons to establish a network of parties with an interest in tackling financial scamming. The event was led by Bournemouth University’s Professor Keith Brown, Director of the Centre for Post Qualifying Social Work. Throughout the evening, speakers, including Conor, spoke of the need to protect vulnerable people who are being targeted by scammers who are increasingly using even more sophisticated methods to target their victims.
Conor and BU were joined by a number of influential parties including Which?, City of London Police, Cifas and Age UK.
Next month Conor will be forming a cross-party All Party Parliamentary Group on Financial Scamming in Parliament to highlight this issue and make progress on fighting the scammers.
Conor met with newly appointed Territorial Policing Commander, Chief Superintendent Searle of Bournemouth Police Station recently. They spoke about the night time economy, homelessness in the town centre and issues with traveller encampments.
