Mission Statement

To maintain Lifeskills - Learning for Living as a Centre of Excellence dedicated to improving the safety and wellbeing of the community. The Centre aims to reduce unintentional injury and to promote a safe and healthy lifestyle by influencing attitudes and changing behaviour.


Since January 2000, Lifeskills has provided safety education through a range of different programmes, including our Year 6 Children’s Programme.

Each year, schools are invited to bring their Year 6 pupils (age 10/11) for a guided tour around the safety centre, which is modelled as a realistic village. During the tour, children are presented with hazardous scenarios in a range of different settings, including a road, beach, dark alleyway, shop, homes, and a railway platform.

Supported by the Programme Co-ordinator, each session is covered by a volunteer Host
and up to 15 volunteer Child Safety Tour Guides.

A highlight in the school calendar, Lifeskills provides an exciting, interactive, and memorable experience. We provide a safe environment, in which children learn about life's common dangers, and the education we provide supports the 'Keeping Safe’ elements of the Personal, Health, Social, Economic curriculum (PHSE).
