Safe Derby – Training
A number of organisations are supporting the Safe Derby programme across the city in schools and communities.
“I can, I will”
“I can, I will” is a schools workshop for children and young people aged 10-14. It highlights the impact of peer-on-peer abuse and empowers young people to speak out if they seeing something wrong. The ‘I Can I Will’ workshop has been developed by specialist child exploitation charity Safe and Sound who are a key partner in the Safe Derby campaign alongside Derby City Council, and Derby Community Action. The work around being an active bystander – speaking up and safely intervening in a situation which you know is wrong – is particularly empowering to show children that they do have a voice. Year six pupils have found talking about these important issues in the safe and familiar primary school setting important before they move onto their senior school.
