Lifeskills is a registered charity that helps around 11,000 people each year to live safer, healthier and more independent lifestyles. We are a unique facility offering safety and independent living education via an interactive, life size village. The various realistic scenarios, including a house, dark alleyway and a railway line, actually allow visitors to experience potentially difficult or dangerous situations, but in a safe environment. This may include practising an emergency 999 call, discovering a house fire and learning how to react to it, carrying out first aid, or experiencing the consequences of playing on a railway line via light, sound and wind effects.

       

Lifeskills is based in central Bristol and caters for schools and organisations across Bath & North East Somerset, South Gloucestershire, North Somerset and Bristol. We run five different programmes aimed at year 6 primary school children (10-11years), young people with special educational needs, adults with learning difficulties, older people and people working with 0-5 year old children.

Each programme has been designed to target those most at risk of unintentional injury, encourage them to take responsibility for their own safety and provide skills that will help them to live as independently as possible.
