The Heddlu Bach handbook is designed to help you set up and run a successful Heddlu Bach programme with the support of Gwent Police.
The Heddlu Bach scheme is a fun and interactive volunteering programme delivered jointly by Gwent Police and schools, for children aged between 9 to 11 years old.

Your NXT GEN Officers are your key connectors between your school and the police. They will be working with you on local community projects and aiding you in rewarding the young people. Building and developing strong relationships with your Neighbourhood Policing Teams is vital in becoming a successful Heddlu Bach.
