Giving the young a voice

Our safety conferences are designed to be lead by your pupils and give them a platform to be heard and make change happen

Organise a safety conference

Conferences are designed to be active and informative, bringing representatives from local schools together with those entrusted with leadership within our communities such as the police, local council members, shopkeepers and parents.

“The safety conference gives young people a voice because we get to see how change can actually happen. We have been treated like adults and trusted to plan and run the conference, the process has given us confidence and demonstrated to us that if we really want to make a change and speak with people in positions in power then it is achievable.”

Year 9 pupil, Addey & Stanhope School

“The school’s work to promote pupils’ personal development and welfare is outstanding. Pupils organise and lead a range of whole-school events. For example, during the inspection Year 9 pupils played a major part in hosting a community safety conference held at the school. This was attended by members of the community, including local young people and community leaders, and focused on issues of safety, including knife crime. This promotes pupils’ leadership skills and supports them to develop their self-confidence and to be self-assured.”
