School workshops

Throughout 2023, officers from Hinckley & Bosworth Borough Council delivered a wide range of workshops to schools, engaging with more than 3000 young people.

Workshops vary and examples of these are based on diversity, wellbeing, anti-social behaviour, safer driving, student councils, climate change and ‘working with us’ to showcase the careers available in local government.

The Healthy holidays event, delivered to sixth formers, is just one example and is a partnership between Hinckley and Bosworth Borough Council, Turning Point and Leicestershire Police.

The event was delivered to The Hinckley School and Brookvale Groby Learning Campus and looked at all areas of health and safety, including cyber safety, drugs and alcohol, anti-social behaviour, relationships, diet and exercise and relaxation. Students got involved in activities which included a personal safety quiz, testing reactions while wearing mock drunk goggles, and evaluating oxygen level tests to see the impact of rest and relaxation. 

Healing together

Sixteen children have participated in a programme which community safety staff deliver for children and young people aged between 5-16 who have been impacted by domestic abuse. The programme helps children/young people learn about how their body and brain can work together to help them feel safe and calm. Healing Together is a six-session trauma informed programme that enables children and young people to access early intervention by people they trust, while in a space they feel safe.
