Supporting social safety

The Christchurch depot donated materials to The Streetwise Safety Centre...

Streetwise Centre, Bournemouth

An indoor, interactive education facility with a life-sized mini village, where young people can learn about challenging social situations in a safe environment.

For one of the centre's courses, 'Nightwise', Howdens donated materials to build a pub within the village. Here teenagers learn about staying safe on a night out, covering topics such as the legal drinking age, dealing with peer pressure and getting home safely.
