Road Safety Education, Training and Publicity

Support for Schools

Road Safety is a vital part of every child's education.

Our role is to support schools in providing this through the whole range of curriculum subjects. Support may be in the form of resources and lesson plans, practical training, special events or class visits.

We can support many organisations including:

  • Rainbows, Brownies, Guides

  • Beavers, Cubs, Scouts

  • Boys / Girls Brigade

  • Youth Clubs

  • After school clubs

  • Sports groups

  • Cycling Clubs

  • Senior Citizens groups
