Charity description

SafeWise logo
Accidents are the leading form of death and injury to children. The cost of one accidental death is £1.8 million: for the families involved the loss is immeasurable.

The SafeWise charity brings together our safety centres in Bournemouth, Weymouth and Wiltshire (due 2018).

Our aim is to reduce the number of people killed and injured in preventable accidents in the home, at play and on the roads.

Our interactive safety centres offer memorable and exciting opportunities for people of all ages to learn about staying safe and healthy. Their unique and memorable life-sized environments help people to spot the potential for danger, learn about risk and consequence and how to take responsibility for their actions – all in a safe and controlled environment.

LV=Streetwise in Bournemouth is an indoor life-sized safety village with town and country ‘bricks and mortar’ scenes from everyday life - including a high street with a pedestrian crossing, two storey house, park, beach, full size train and railway station and its own police station!

SafeWise Weymouth offers FireWise - a unique fire safety education experience, and the RoadWise outdoor road safety centre, and community facilities including meeting rooms, dance studio, IT suite and cafeteria.

SafeWise is a registered charity, a company limited by guarantee and a multiagency partnership with the emergency services, Bournemouth Dorset & Poole local authorities and the business community.

Room and centre hire, fire and first aid training, sponsorships and donations all help to cover the annual running costs of £400,000: and with 20,000 visitors every year each £20 raised covers the cost for one visit to a safety centre.

Prevention: what price a child's life?
