Safety first for local children using sponsored safety games

August 2013

Story Homes is supporting a project to increase safety awareness amongst local school children.Safe4Kids-logo-final

The Safe 4 Kids project created safety awareness games for schools. The games create awareness among children about different aspects of danger such as building site danger, road safety, internet safety, stranger danger, drug abuse, vandalism, crime prevention, bullying, racism and many more. The aim is to teach the children how to deal with each of the situations should they arise.

Story Homes has supported five local schools by providing the games for the next school year. The schools are:

  • Shotley Bridge Junior School, County Durham
  • Rockcliffe C of E School, Carlisle
  • Noblehill School, Dumfries
  • Christ Church School, Lancaster
  • Kells Infant School, Whitehaven

The games are a unique and valuable resource pack for the schools which are used throughout the year and can also be taken home to play with parents, raising their awareness of the issues too.
