We help children make healthy choices by visiting local schools in Berkshire and neighbouring counties with our mobile classroom or ‘Life Buses’ and ‘Harold the Giraffe’ as children prefer to call them, to deliver Life Education programmes which help children to form positive attitudes, avoid risky behaviours and make healthy choices for themselves in life. Our programmes are delivered by specially trained Educators with topics including healthy eating,the importance of exercise, and as children get older we examine the effects and risks associated with the use of drugs, including medicines, alcohol including binge drinking and smoking.

Children are also taught friendship skills and how to deal with bullying and peer group pressure. We also offer schools sex and relationship education programmes and a bCyberwise programme which supports children in remaining safe on-line.
