Would you like to take small groups of children(up to 6), aged between 7-12 years, around an indoor interactive centre in Milton Keynes and help them identify hazards and develop safe strategies to deal with potential emergencies and hazards? The Safety Centre- Hazard Alley is an interactive education centre where primary children learn about keeping safe During a 2 hr tour in our ‘life size’ village children encounter a range of hazards giving them the opportunity to develop vital knowledge and strategies on how to stay safe. An excellent team spirit exists between the volunteers and many enjoy coming in before a tour for a chat and a cup of tea. Our volunteers vary in age and are from all walks of life.

Skills

This opportunity will require an enhanced Disclosure & Barring Service (DBS) check. A volunteer requires the ability to be able to relate to children and encourage discussion. Good listening skills coupled with the ability to answer any questions, which the children may raise. Patience and a sense of humour are very useful. Training is provided. We would expect a volunteer to do a minimum of two sessions of 2.5hrs a month or more often if they would like. Please see our new video on our website for a snapshot of the centre in action.
