Milton Keynes safety education charity calls out to all schools following hit and run in hometown

    Milton Keynes based charity the Safety Centre is urging schools to contact them for lifesaving road safety education following the news of a teenage girl being injured in a hit-and-run in the city last week.

    The charity, which celebrates 30 years of lifesaving learning in 2024, has developed their own road safety education programme for school children from age 4-11. This programme is delivered into school classrooms for students to learn how to keep themselves safe as they walk to school.

    CEO of the Safety Centre, Maya Joseph-Hussain said "Every child encounters a road on their way to school. We must educate our young people about how to stay safe when they’re walking to and from school to give them the tools to make safe decisions. You only have one chance to safely make your way through traffic as a pedestrian and we want all young people to understand how to keep themselves safe and to understand the risks of the roads. Every life lost to traffic incidents is one too many. I encourage all schools to contact our Education Team to invite us into your school to deliver this lifesaving learning to your students. Call 01908 263009 or email educationteam@safetycentre.co.uk to speak to our experienced teachers about how we can support your students to stay safe.”

    The charity is also announcing the launch of an education programme today in partnership with the Motor Insurers’ Bureau (MIB) for 1,000 11-18 year olds focusing on pedestrian and driver safety.

    The programme delivered by the Safety Centre’s Education Team has been created by MIB to educate young people about the risks they face when using the roads and to support MIB’s long-term vision to end uninsured driving for good by educating the next generation of drivers.
