"LV=Streetwise and the Weymouth Community Safety Centre are now part of the SafeWise charity."

On 1st April 2014 the two centres merged to form a premier regional safety charity called SafeWise. The charities’ services complement each other and have great synergy so joining together is a natural move which now provides services for people of all ages at both the Bournemouth and Weymouth safety centres as well as developing new opportunities out in the community. 
 


ABOUT LV=STREETWISE

Every year thousands of children are injured in preventable 
accidents in the home, on the roads and at play.

LV=Streetwise helps to reduce the chance of accidents 
happening by helping children to learn about potential dangers in the everyday world around them in a safe, controlled, memorable and exciting venue. 

Based in Dorset, it is an award-winning interactive safety education charity - a life sized, indoor ‘bricks and mortar’ ‘village’ of scenarios which are traditionally built scenes from everyday town and country life.

LV=Streetwise is a multi-agency partnership involving the councils, emergency services, local businesses and other voluntary organisations: LV= were a founding partner in 1998 and became title sponsors in 2007.The LV=Streetwise safety village includes a full sized two-storey house, a high street, a park, a farmyard, an electricity sub-station, a heath, a beach, a building site and even Police and railway stations. By making the scenarios as realistic as possible, the exciting and memorable interactive Safety Tours enable children to easily apply the learning in their everyday life.

  • Become aware of potential everyday dangers

  • Learn to make responsible choices

  • Understand possible consequences

  • Reduce the chance of accidents happening

  • Learn in a safe, controlled environment

While most of us are lucky enough to avoid major accidents or serious crime, we all deal with risk every day and may experience domestic hazards in the home or minor crime on the streets. As adults, we reduce our chances of risk by using skills we have developed through education and knowledge we have gained through experience.

LV=Streetwise gives children a head start in their safety education, supporting parents and schools in providing them with essential skills for life.


So who should come?

Whilst the underlying message at LV=Streetwise has a serious educational theme, a tour of the centre is truly a visitor attraction with a difference. As well as group tours, we welcome individual bookings from families, children, teachers, youth groups and even senior citizens and parents wishing to update their own "streetwise skills".

LV=Streetwise is for businesses too:

  • Fire safety, first aid and personal safety training

  • Excellent value meeting room and facilities

  • Village/scenario hire for training and team building events


  SafeWise is a registered charity and a multi       agency partnership project with Dorset’s      
  emergency services, local authorities and the
  business community.

 

LV=, the UK's largest friendly society help people protect the things they love in life. This includes providing car insurance, home insurance, life cover and supporting the Streetwise centre to help reduce the risk of accidents in the home and  
on our roads. LV= were a founding partner and in 2007, after 10 years of supporting the centre, LV= increased their support to become the centre's lead commercial sponsor.


LV=Streetwise is fun, educational and unmissable - but more importantly
