Welcome to RAFT!
Road Awareness For Tots to Teens
I teach road awareness and safety messages in a unique, fun, creative and memorable way for children from 2 to 13 years of age (and also adults). I recognise how important the elements of fun and excitement are within the learning process so all our materials are hand or custom made for our learners to explore, engage and get creative with. All our learning happens in a safe and controlled environment (normally inside).
My mission is to empower parents, teachers and whoever else may have a duty of care, to share road awareness and safety messages with children to help keep them safe. Providing children with road safety education early on can instil positive lifelong attitudes and skills helping them to become safer road users, whilst also encouraging ‘active travel’ which has a positive impact on our planet, minds and bodies!
Whether you’re an organisation, school, nursery, parent, community group, I have a ‘RAFT’ of ways we can deliver road awareness and safety messages to a variety of audiences, children and adults alike so do get in touch.
Who do we work with?
Who delivers RAFT?
RAFT is delivered by me, Laura, I'm mum to two young children, previous Senior Road Safety professional and Teacher. I am a member of the Road Safety GB Academy and have been awarded my Road Safety Practitioner qualification (2020).
I have written and delivered road safety training for Police Community Support Officers in London and I'm available to discuss any broader road safety education training needs. As heard on BBC Three Counties Radio.
Who inspired RAFT?
Owen, my eldest child. He was and still is a very lively boy with lots of energy. I recognised the need to teach him road awareness and safety messages, starting with ‘road rules’ which seemed to help. I then invited some of his buddies over for some RAFT sessions to ‘practise’ how well toddlers would respond to my ideas and RAFT was created!
