Kerbcraft teaches children from age 5-7 how to be safer
pedestrians by taking them onto real roads and showing them how the
right decision-making and behaviour can really help them to keep
safe. It is a vital skill that if taught at this age will remain
for life. It includes every child who has parental consent. Our aim
is to reduce child pedestrian casualties and since Kerbcraft
started numbers have declined.
Practical Road-Side Training has proved to be the best
way of helping young children to keep safe when near ,or crossing
The children are taken out of school by trained volunteers, in
groups of no more than three to learn 3 main skills:
- 1. Choosing safe places to cross the road
- 2. Crossing safely near parked cars
- 3. Crossing safely near junctions
Each skill is practised at several different locations over a
period of approx 4 weeks for each skill, in liaison with the school
and its timetable.
WE NEED VOLUNTEERS TO HELP US TEACH THESE CRITICAL
WE CANNOT TEACH THE CHILDREN WITHOUT THEM
Who can be a Volunteer ?
Mums, dads , grandparents, aunties, uncles, school governors and
friends of the school.
Can you, or anyone you know, spare 2 hours a week to be
a KERBCRAFT Training Volunteer? You could be helping save a life
one day. Its not difficult ,the co-ordinator is always present at
every session and volunteers will be given full training and
It's a very rewarding experience.
