Young people from across Salford will be given important safety advice over the next two weeks.
The ‘Crucial Crew’ events, coordinated by Child Safety Media, will take place at Haldane Barracks in Salford.
Hundreds of primary school pupils will be given lessons from a wide range of safety organisations including Greater Manchester Police, British Transport Police, the Dog’s Trust, Salix Homes, Urban Vision and Barclays.
Pupils will be presented with a number of dangerous or challenging situations such as road hazards or house fire – and take part in role-play exercises to learn how to deal with the situation.
The ‘hands-on’ safety events teach young people about important issues that are often overlooked by the curriculum, including antisocial behaviour, personal safety and road safety.
Pupils are given the unique opportunity to learn valuable skills from the professionals, through practical demonstrations and discussions in real-life situations – all within a safe environment.
The workshops run from 17th November to 5th December at the Haldane Barracks on Haldane Road.
