Abi Wickes, Social Enterprise Engagement lead at the University of Northampton said " The University is internationally recognised as a Changemaker University and this film perfectly encapsulates why.  It is very rewarding to see a group of students put what they've learnt with us to good use and freely offer their services to a very worthwhile local charity."

 

"They felt it was a fantastic opportunity to work with a 'real life' project whilst supporting an organisation that saves children's lives," said Abi

 

 

 The two months production included three full shooting days, according to Director Alex Carr, a third year Media Production and Creative Writing student.  Also on the production were Bradley Howe (Media Production/Management), Dragos Istvan (Media Production), Michael Sargent (Media Production), Dan Smith-Barnes (Media Production) and Taryn Astle (Film and Screen Studies/English).

Thank you to Willmott Dixon - A new Building Site Scenario ! (Aug 2015)

 

"At Willmott Dixon we believe in giving back to local communities and supporting young people in any way we can.  We are pleased to have provided the centre with a special zone on contruction, which aims to engage young people about the dangers found on a building site.  We also want to thank all our our sub-contractors that supplied materials and time free of charge for this project.

Hazard Alley is a great example of how communities can support and educate children, the centre is a great way for children to learn outside of the classroom and have new and challenging experiences".

Ben Cohen Visit standup bencohen1

 

World Cup Rugby Star Ben Cohen MBE visited the Safety Centre on 24th May 2012.

 

As part of the UK launch of his charity, he met some very excited children from Eastfield Primary School whose visit was funded by a grant from the Ben Cohen Standup Foundation.

 

The Ben Cohen StandUp Foundation is the world's first foundation dedicated to raising awareness of the long-term, damaging effects of bullying, and funding those doing real-world work to stop it.

 

"we are very pleased to support an innovative project such as Hazard Alley, at the Safety Centre in Milton Keynes.  We are particularly passionate about the Internet Safety element, which helps improve young people's awareness of the dangers of chat-room banter and what constitutes cyber bullying," Ben Cohen

 

The children learn life-skills, which will remain with them throughout their lives.  The Safety Centre promotes strategies to help children deal with bullying alongside many other safety messages in a unique experiential way.

The Safety Centre opened in 1994 as a partnership-based community safety project involving Thames Valley Police, Buckinghamshire Fire & Rescue Service, health authorities, local government, other statutory organisations and the private sector. The centre is not centrally funded and as such relies heavily on donations and sponsorship.
