Key issues such as road, fire and water safety are covered alongside input on vandalism, drugs and alcohol, financial awareness, what to do in an emergency and other lifeskills for independent living.

Our smaller centre at Handsworth is situated next to a working Fire Station and provides a focus on fire safety and the work of the Fire Service.

Both centres are owned and managed by West Midlands Fire Service with strong support from partners such as Nationwide Building SocietyCentroNetwork RailNational Express, Safer Travel Police, West Midlands Ambulance Service and the Midlands Co-op.
