About Us

Lifeskills is a permanent safety centre providing exciting, hands-on safety education for year 6 children, children and young people with special educational needs, adults with learning difficulties, older people and young families.
The centre is built as a realistic village on the 4th Floor of The Create Centre in Hotwells, Bristol. People learn about staying safe in the home, on the road or during leisure time, in a fun and practical way.
Visits are booked either through schools or with professionals who have trained to use the centre.
