STREETWISE Workshops

#STREETWISE


 

Young people are growing up quicker than ever and with an increasing pressure placed upon them within today’s society they may be more vulnerable. 

 

Adult safeguarding has never been more prevalent than it is today.

 

Social media has a profound effect on children and young people with continuous exposure to all elements in today’s society, this may include:

 

  • - Peer pressure
  • - Gang culture and Anti-social behaviour
  • - Cyber bullying
  • - Bullying
  • - Drugs and Alcohol
  • - Sexual exploitation

 

Our STREETWISE program brings together key life skills that help a young person to feel safe and more confident. Our personal safety workshop is an essential guide to equipping children and young persons in various ways to enhance they safety.  

 

These include:

 

  • - Safety Awareness Situations
  • - Communication Skills
  • - Body Language

Being aware of your surroundings, your friends and your own behaviour has a direct impact on the safety of you and others. We can all become vulnerable at times, and perhaps become involved in conflict. Situations can escalate with many contributing factors including external influences which may include social media.

 

Additional modules on First Aid and Fire Safety can be included in our STREETWISE workshops.

 

We can provide bespoke packages that are tailored to meet the needs of your school, club or organisation – whether you want to cover all the topics or just a selection, we can deliver a workshop that precisely meets your requirements.

 

Our safety workshops are approximately two hours depending on group size and modules selected.
