Crochet Bobby Buddies for Child Victims of Domestic Abuse

Can you help knit or crochet a Bobby Buddies for child victims of domestic abuse? 

Hampshire Police are appealing to the craft community to help make more teddy bears to hand  out to children involved in incidents of domestic abuse. 

Previously, Police were inundated with offers of help from members of the community to knit the police officer teddy bears. They’ve been so popular that they’re now running low.

The bears, which are knitted by volunteers, are given to children by officers to help communicate with them and break down barriers that can exist when police attend after a domestic incident.

These little teddy bears makes a big difference as it helps the police to talk to the children in order to receive the best care. The little bears provide comfort and reassurance to the children and brings a smile to their faces during a difficult period in their lives.
