To discuss the LIFE project or to refer a young person contact us:
Improving life chances for young people.
In 2005 we introduced the LIFE project (Local Intervention Fire Education). The project aims to work with those young people who are struggling at school, at home, in the community, those that just need some time out to get their lives back together or any young person who would benefit from a week with us.
The course is designed specifically to challenge young people aged 13-17 who may benefit from a week within a uniformed and disciplined environment.
We hope that it will help to reduce call-outs, fire deaths and injuries and also improve the safety of fire crews and the communities they serve.
We want to work toward better outcomes for young people, helping them stay healthy and safe, to enjoy life and achieve their potential.
The LIFE project also provides an opportunity for us to engage with local young people within their local communities.
The consequences session uses uncut footage of fire and road incidents, giving the young people the opportunity to examine and discuss the unpleasant results of antisocial behaviour, highlighting the cost to the community, emergency services, the young people and their families.
All important skills required in the workplace.
By working together to develop and implement local solutions to local problems in a co-ordinated approach we will create safer and more sustainable communities.
