CRIME & SAFETY AWARENESS DAY IN MORE DETAIL

Our highly acclaimed multi-agency “Crime & Safety Awareness Days” further compliment the fields of learning offered. These popular days include, high impact workshops, role-plays, drama, a lot of fun, and often end with a pop concert. Young people are provided with a unique opportunity to learn in an innovative and active fashion about the possible consequences of becoming involved in antisocial or criminal behaviour. They are interactive, thought provoking and extremely impressionable. Awareness days are specifically designed for the young so they can associate with the message.

Audiences usually range from Year 8 to Year 10 pupils. The pupils visited by the Trust on “Crime & Safety Awareness Days” are removed from their normal daily school cycle and become isolated from other members of their peer group for the day and treated like offenders. They participate in exercise and meal routines, and are escorted from workshop to workshop as “actual offenders” are when moving round the prison! The programmes and resources used also help to redress the exaggerated and often-incorrect images of prison life portrayed through television and the media and any myths or misconceptions young people may have. These days encourage participants to respect the value of their freedom whilst experiencing the restrictive regimes of a real day in the life of an offender first hand. Presentations are not one-offs; they are intended to be repeated year on year and it is a vital aim of the No-Way Trust to develop these spectacular days further so that more schools can benefit from the opportunity to be involved in these unique events.

The continuing success of the project means we are getting more and more requests from schools to deliver this meaningful message.
