How to stay safe
Develop and practice skills that help us to stay safe online and in the real world. We run both short workshops and longer courses on how to keep safe: at home, with other people, online, out and about.
We work with education providers including Primary and Secondary Schools, Special Education and Universities. We work at the appropriate level to discuss: equality and diversity, inclusion bullying and hate crime. We are always interested in reaching out to new and emerging communities.
