Kerbcraft teaches children aged 5-7 how to be safer pedestrians. It takes them onto real roads, showing them how the right decision-making and behaviour will help them to keep safe. Teaching children at this age ensures this vital skill will remain with them for life. It includes every child who has parental consent. Our aim is to reduce child pedestrian casualties and since Kerbcraft started numbers have declined.
Practical Road-Side Training has proved to be the best way of helping young children to keep safe when near or crossing roads.
The children are taken out of school by trained volunteers, in groups of no more than three to learn 3 main skills:
- Choosing safe places to cross the road
- Crossing safely near parked cars
- Crossing safely near junctions
Each skill is practised at several different locations over a period of approx 4 weeks for each skill, in liaison with the school and its timetable.
We need volunteers to help us teach these critical skills - could you become a volunteer?
Who can be a Volunteer ?
Mums, dads , grandparents, aunties, uncles, school governors and friends of the school.
Can you, or anyone you know, spare 2 hours a week to be a KERBCRAFT Training Volunteer? You could be helping save a life one day. Its not difficult, the coordinator is always present at every session and volunteers will be given full training and support .
