The Lifewise Centre is a unique learning facility with safety and life choices at its core. Within an immersive learning environment, the Centre delivers a range of programmes and activities which impact on, and are influenced by, the broad safer roads agenda.
A wide range of road safety programmes are co-ordinated through the Centre. These include initiatives aimed at identified key target groups of young drivers (17-24 years), people driving for work, powered two wheeler riders (motorcycles and scooters), pedal cyclists, mobility scooter users, elderly drivers and pedestrians.
Crucial Crew is the centre's 'flagship' personal safety educational programme, aimed at key stage 2 pupils (10 and 11 year olds). Through the use of interactive, scenario-based learning on the Lifewise set, children are provided with the knowledge, skills and strategies to make choices in everyday life to enable them to stay safe and well.
