Andrew Opie, Director of Safety at Croydon Council and Jeff Boothe, Chief Superintendent of Croydon Metropolitan Police were guest speakers and gave an insight into their outlook for the Borough.

Reflecting on the relationship CPFC Foundation has with the Croydon Metropolitan Police, Jeff Boothe said:

“It’s fantastic that CPFC are quite clearly community focused, looking at being engaged and having a real legacy. We look forward to working with the Foundation to achieve their aims as they are aligned to our core values.”

Soye Briggs, Director of Community Development at CPFC Foundation said:

“Crystal Palace FC & the Foundation are truly committed to partnership work in our local community and the Croydon Big Localities Network event brought together voluntary Sector organisations, the Council and the Met Police as a great example of this. We are all passionate about the young people in Croydon and want them to do well, so sharing best practise ideas and understanding the strategic priorities that benefit young people is of the highest importance.”
