There are 6 rooms at our premises – The Safe - each teaching a different aspect of health and safety including internet safety, fire safety, road safety, rail safety, bullying and hate crime, home safety and solvent abuse We’re with you on your safety journey - from interactive lessons for children and safety awareness for school leavers, to safety engagement in the workplace and community. And this is where we need YOU!
Volunteering at Absafe is an experience like no other. As one of our volunteers, you’re part of a close-knit team, all with a common goal – to use education to save lives. You’ll help us deliver our dynamic safety sessions with the Absafe team to young people and all we ask for is plenty of energy, a positive attitude and an interest in developing your own skills.
The safe can’t operate on a daily basis without volunteers; they are the life force of our operation.
