Welcome to SafeWise

Find our Christmas closing and New Year opening times

We deliver interactive and practical ‘skills for life’ education in realistic full size streetscapes at Bournemouth and Weymouth. Our philosophy is one of ‘discuss, decide and do’ where visitors are actively engaged in an immersive environment rather than simply listening to advice.

We cover road safety, fire safety, water safety and home safety alongside crime prevention, what to do in an emergency, healthy living, mental wellbeing, citizenship, environmental sustainability, householder responsibilities, financial skills and much more.

We deliver bespoke programmes to meet the specific needs of groups including parents and carers of early years, primary Key Stage 1 and 2, secondary Key Stage 3, home-leavers including students, older people, and learners with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND).

We also provide attractive community facilities including meeting/function rooms, a dance studio, and a cafe.
