Our Safe Haven programme is led by Barry and Margaret Mizen, MBEs and is designed to develop character, resilience and achievement. We work with groups of 20-25 young people who have been identified by the school as being socially and/or academically to build safer, stronger and more united communities.

Overview

Our Safe Havens school programme runs for six sessions. It begins with Margaret telling the children Jimmy’s story, before they begin to build Safe Havens on their local high street.

Community

We call the children who participate in our programme Peace Builders. This is because they work towards building a safer, stronger and more united community.

Outcomes

Throughout the years, we have found that our programme leads to increased confidence, empathy, teamwork and communication skills.
