What is Warning Zone?

Warning Zone is a Life-Skills Centre and children safeguarding charity. We deliver potentially life-saving messages to children and young people across Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland. Historically, we have worked with Year 6 children (aged 10/11), catching them at a key transition in their life as they venture in to secondary school. At this point they will make new friendship groups and have new experiences. They will also have more independence and will be responsible for their actions, behaviour and the decisions they make – both offline and online. We aim to reduce the risk of accidental injury and death and also the strain on our emergency services. Eight set-piece scenarios run alongside our E-Safety Zone. We educate young people on understanding risks and consequences, peer pressure, anti-social behaviour, grooming, cyber-bullying and much more. As a charity, we rely on donations and individuals who act as volunteer guides.

Ever thought about volunteering at Warning Zone? Here's what one of our students has to say... "I came across Warning Zone (WZ) in February. I applied because I was looking to gain experience in an area of education related to my degree. WZ has allowed me to develop professionally by linking me with many professional and ex-professional public service workers, allowing me to ask questions about my chosen field. With opportunities for various projects and activities relating to online and general safety, I have developed my own understanding of safety while working with children and young adults. As a result of my time at Warning Zone, I have been nominated for several volunteering awards at DMU. This was possible thanks to the encouragement and kindness shown to me by the staff and fellow volunteers, who have supported me. If you enjoy working with young people or have an interest in public services, this opportunity is ideal!" Rob is studying Criminal Investigation with Policing at DMU.
