Absafe has just launched a new interactive game designed to help children make safe decisions, should they be faced with a fire in their home.
We'll use the Android-enabled game in our fire safety sessions. These educational lessons are delivered by the Absafe team and its volunteers, and are aimed to inform children about the dangers of fire and smoke, as well as the consequences of making hoax calls.
SAFETY education charity Absafe has secured more than £67,000 of funding from Aberdeen City Council, allowing it to continue to provide safety sessions to schools in the local area.
Absafe is the north-east of Scotland’s only charity dedicated to safety education and awareness delivering informative and engaging sessions to adults and children. The charity received £67,720 from the local authority, and the funding will be used to facilitate school visits for primary pupils throughout the city.
In the last year, Absafe has delivered educational safety sessions to more than 3000 children across 50 schools.
Absafe and AFC Community Trust are joining forces in The ABrentice, a fundraising competition where teams compete to come up with the most creative ways to turn £50 into as much money as possible for the charities.
Teams will have five weeks of ‘trading’ from Monday 1st May to turn this initial investment into oodles of cash, with the money raised split between the two local causes.
Like BBC One’s The Apprentice, participating teams will have access to top business advisors to help guide them along the way. Representatives from AFC Community Trust and Aberdeen Football Club will aid the teams with business development, while Absafe will provide media relations, marketing and legal support.
Absafe has announced new additions to its board of trustees, with Les Linklater, Executive Director of Step Change in Safety, elected as Chairman.
Duncan Peter, Business Development Manager for fellow charity Inspire, joins as Vice Chairman.
Absafe provides interactive safety-led sessions to schools, corporates and the wider community delivered in an engaging and informative style. Absafe is the only charity of its kind in the North east of Scotland promoting and delivering interactive safety education and accident prevention awareness.
Also joining the board is media consultant and freelance journalist Kirstin Gove, and Wayne Henderson, Managing Director of business improvement consultancy Kaizah.
