gateway North East is a charity that works with children and young people with a disability or barrier to learning. We run holiday schemes in every school holiday and train our older young people to work with the younger ones. Our focus group age 11-14 start to learn how to help others and become a bit more independent as part of this we are developing a short training course which will help them to learn how to cross the road themselves  and accompany someone else across the road . this involves practicing, watching demonstrations learning about road safety, using high viz bibs and finding accessible places to cross , everything has to be broken down into small steps but also us to be done in an enjoyable way that the young people can understand. We have done a trial certificate with 8 young people but would like to deliver this at our other sites and produce some easy read booklets that are appropriate for our young people
