Resources for school and group work

Our Safestories videos explore common themes and risks for young people including child exploitation, cyber abuse, self-harm, sexual assault and bullying. These videos are designed to be accessed directly by young people and are accompanied by tips and advice for dealing with the issues.  The videos are also used as a helpful resource for preventative social education in schools and youth work settings.  Alongside education professionals we have written lesson plans to accompany the videos for young people aged 11 to 16.
