Living in Safety and Stability

Living in Safety and Stability Curriculum developed by Boys and Girls Clubs NI

The Youth Service Regional Assessment of Need (2020-23) identified Living in Safety & Stability as one of the key themes for the Youth sector. Assessment findings suggest that there are a number of risk factors which directly impact the ability to live safe and stable lives. Socioeconomic, demographic, environmental and cultural influences can directly impact on a child or young person. 

These negative influences on children or young people can have serious consequences for their future life chances. This 10-week programme aims to promote a safer environment for young people, promote positive decision making, develop resilience and coping strategies, and help young people achieve their full potential. 

The assessment plan provides an overview of learning outcomes, assessment criteria and suggested activities over ten 2-3-hour sessions. 

Alongside the session plans, tutors are encouraged to avail of the PowerPoint slides for each session which include useful information, pictures, activity prompts and videos. Session plans reference all additional worksheets/ materials required for workshop activities.
