Youth intervention packages

As well as going into schools to deliver presentations to both primary and secondary pupils, we also run a range of youth engagement and intervention packages. These are outlined below:

Crucial Crew

Crucial Crew is a programme for 10-11-year-olds that is run at the joint fire and police Lifewise Centre in Rotherham. All year six pupils are invited to spend an interactive role play day at the centre where they are taken through a life-like village. Fire and police staff, who run the centre, take them through a range of different topics, including: fire safety, bus safety, road safety, drug awareness, online safety and much more.

Fired Up

Fired Up is a three day resilience programme designed with to assist young people post-pandemic. It works on the six pillars of resilience – practically showing young people when they are engaging them so they can better use them when needed. A physically demanding programme for small and established groups of young people. They will be pushed to their limit, and then asked for just a little more, embracing the course motto – “If you think you can’t go on, go on”


The Ignite courses aims to highlight the consequences of anti-social behaviour, increasing confidence, resilience and coping mechanisms through an intensive one week course which includes scenario and class based sessions. It is designed to develop and encourage team building, increase fire safety awareness and provide young people with valuable life skills, resilience and coping mechanisms.
