FireSafe

We can deliver one to one sessions to young people to explore firesetting behaviour.

The Safe programme will usually commence with a Home Fire Safety Check for the family home (or homes if more than one). This helps to ensure that everyone is aware of how best to keep safe and that they know what to do in the event of a fire. Following this visit, an assessment is made and an action plan formulated for the young person (at this point a referral may be declined although alternative therapies would be suggested).

The programme will be a combination of educational input and/or a series of visits to ensure that consequential thinking is established. The programme is delivered by members of the Risk Reduction team, who are skilled practitioners and are used to conducting such visits with youngsters of all ages and abilities. The programme can be delivered in a variety of ways, in a number of locations (e.g. home, school, Youth Offending Service/Team offices) and tailored to the individual’s needs.

The aim of the programme is to make young people aware of the impact of their behaviour through discussion and give them the opportunity to explore different ways of dealing with a situation.

Parental consent is required for this work.
