Gloucestershire Fire & Rescue Service offer prevention and safety education for all ages through SkillZONE
SkillZONE is an interactive, life-size indoor village with realistic home, community, road, cyber and criminal justice zones. It is Gloucestershire’s only purpose-built safety education centre and is run by Gloucestershire Fire & Rescue Service on behalf of Gloucestershire County Council. The centre is staffed by a small team from GFRS and a group of extraordinary volunteers.
SkillZONE has been designed to help people learn how to reduce unintentional injury, reduce anti-social behaviour, improve health and wellbeing and live independently. Information about booking a group session for schools and community groups can be found on the website with links to youth projects and outreach programmes that divert children from risky behaviour. Please visit the SkillZONE website to find out more information about the range of programmes or to contact one of the team for advice.
