Lifeskills is a safety education centre, built as a realistic 'village', based in the CREATE Centre, Bristol. It is designed to help children, adults with learning difficulties and older people learn about safety in a fun and interactive way. Participants make their way through the scenarios learning and demonstrating safety skills and experiencing emergency situations, including practicing emergency 999 calls, discovering and reacting to a house fire, carrying out first aid and experiencing the consequences of trespassing on a railway line – all made very realistic. Lifeskills currently run five different programmes which are specifically designed to educate Year 6 Primary school children (10-11 years), adults with learning difficulties, children with special educational needs, parents with young children and older people. The Foundation recently awarded £7,300 towards training and visits for people with learning difficulties and/or special needs.
