About SkillZONE

SkillZONE is Gloucestershire’s only interactive life skills village where people of all ages can learn how to keep themselves safe whether at home or in their community. We offer safety education and bespoke programmes for schools and community groups. SkillZONE has been designed to reduce unintentional injury from fire, road and leisure accidents, reduce anti-social behaviour, improve health and wellbeing and increase social inclusion for all ages. These outcomes are achieved through a combination of prevention safety education sessions in our scenario village. This work changes attitudes and behaviour by identifying risks and understanding how to make safer choices. This is intended to reduce attendance at Accident & Emergency, delay or prevent first entry into the criminal justice system and reduce the pressure on mental health services.
