People working with families, community leaders, health professionals and teachers are being offered free half-day training course aimed at helping to save children’s lives on the roads.
After the training all those who attend will be in a position to give life-saving presentations to parents with young children about the risks they face and offer practical advice on using roads safely.
The training covers topics including correctly restraining children in vehicles, safe driving and keeping children safe on foot and bike.
Everyone who attends the training course will receive free resources, including a colourful flip-chart, hand outs for parents and advice on how to give an effective presentation, as well as on-going telephone support from Brake.
The ‘Stay Safe Family Promise’ road safety training is available through the FedEx and Brake Road Safety Academy.
The academy targets the most at-risk road users, including children, by training volunteers and professionals to deliver road safety presentations within their local community.
The training is available across the UK and can be set up in-house.
