What we do
SafeWise is a charity which runs immersive safety, health, citizenship and life skills education centres in Bournemouth and Weymouth, with a third centre planned for Swindon/Wiltshire in 2020. These centres feature full size scenarios such as streets, pedestrian crossings, buses, trains, fire and home safety scenarios, with exciting plans for future development. We teach visitors of all ages a wide range of skills for life such as fire, water, home, road and travel safety, health, crime, internet safety, bullying and mental wellbeing. These skills for life are often marginalised in our education system, but we think they are as important as literacy and maths.
What we believe
Our philosophy is that every visitor should experience a fun and immersive learning environment in which they ‘discuss, decide and do’, rather than simply listening and being told. Talk, decision-making and practical activity in our realistic scenarios deliver memorable learning and motivate visitors in a way that is difficult to replicate in a classroom.
