Our story

SafeWise charity is dedicated to providing skills for life for people of all ages at our centres in Bournemouth, Weymouth and Swindon (opening 2020). Visitors are encouraged to ‘discuss, decide and do’ in realistic scenarios designed to build confidence and develop skills to enjoy active, fulfilled and safer lives.

SafeWise Bournemouth now includes a full indoor street scene including shops, house, bus, beach, train and much more.  SafeWise Weymouth features interactive fire safety scenarios and a full size outdoor road network and streetscene complete with traffic lights and pedestrian crossings.

We have exciting expansion plans for both centres and are opening a new state of the art centre in Swindon in 2020 in partnership with Dorset & Wiltshire Fire & Rescue Service.
