A key aim of the NPCT is to educate and inform young people so that they are better equipped to make good decisions. We want to help young people to stay safe, lead healthy lives and make the very most of their unique potential. If we can do that then we can make a contribution to wider society, reducing crime and the causes of crime and improving quality of life for everyone.
There is strong evidence to support early intervention but with sensitive subject areas, this needs to be handled with sensitivity and care. Our Key Stage 1 & 2 Children’s books have been designed to be fun and interesting while supporting discussion around important safety messages and learning goals. Our books range from generic Stranger Danger to Anti Social Behaviour, Drugs and Alcohol and Internet Safety.
NCPT programmes for older young people are all peer led. Our philosophy is to work with young people, involving them in content and design. We want to address the issues that affect their lives using tools that they can relate to. We run consultation workshops and invite young people to work with us and our design team to develop our resources.
Uchooze – was informed by consultation with over 2,000 young people. We asked young people to talk to us about their experiences and the issues that affect them and then, tell us what they felt the key areas of education/awareness were. We then worked with them to create a series of short films with wrap around lesson plans that can be used in school or community settings. The subject areas are gangs, knife crime, anti social behaviour and drugs/alcohol.
H8 Crime Resource Pack
H8 Crime Resource pack was commissioned by Durham Agency Against Crime. An animated film supports lesson plans around the 5 strands of Hate Crime: Gender/Diversity; Religion: Disability; Sexual Orientation and Race.
We accept commissions to design and deliver resources and have a fund raising team that can raise the finance for your project.
