Personal Safety and Assertiveness Training
Between 2009 and 2012 we asked 2480 children across Brighton and Hove what made them feel unsafe and what they thought should be done about it.
One of the things children felt worried about was how to keep themselves safe when out and about without an adult. They wanted to be aware of key risks and what they could do themselves to keep safe.
This led to us to develop Personal Safety and Assertiveness Sessions for Year 6’s. In the session you learn how to look after yourself but also gives you a chance to voice what you think is unsafe in your local area. Your concerns are then fed back to adults who may be able to do something about this.
Have a look at this short film to learn more about it and hear from children who have attended a session.
