Knives are one of young people's top fears. Help us create a new scenario or schools workshop to help children cope better as they grow up.

by Jo Green in Kiln Farm, England, United Kingdom

Hazard Alley was created 25 years ago specifically for primary aged children to teach them how deal with the safety concerns of the day in a fun and engaging way.  Our approach to immersing children in a physical, life size, real-life but familiar world where they can safely explore hazards and risks is highly memorable. But it needs to reflect today's dangers so we can teach them strategies to cope and give them knowledge and skills to deal with situations involving knives.

We could devise a new scenario for our safety learning village and / or create a workshop session that can be taught by our qualified and experienced education officers at the centre or out in schools.

We'd need to spend some time researching successful approaches elsewhere so we can learn from best practice as we devise something appropriate to children aged 11 and under in Milton Keynes. We'd need to develop our ideas, talk to experts and test out activities and situations to see what learning activities have the greatest impact and work for the age range. Raising awareness without scaring children too much is a very fine line to walk. 

We're a self financing charity so the funding would cover staff costs & time as well as purchasing resources, props, materials etc for our pilot activities. We'd also need to spend some time evaluating responses from both children and teachers to make sure it's going to have a positive impact on young people and the choices they make that we want to see.
