How to react in an emergency
When and how to contact emergency services, what to say on the phone and where to get help.
Safe behaviour around dogs
What to do if a dog runs up to you, how to divert a dogs attention, what you can use to send a dog away, how to stay safe if a dog jumps up.

Simple but affective physical techniques to help children defend themselves if someone tries to physically hurt them.
With the exception of self defence content, these can be delivered directly to children or as staff training.
"Freedom Personal Safety has worked with a number of children in our school. Working with complete confidentiality, professionalism and a real passion to support the health and wellbeing of our children, their work has made a tremendous impact on the lives of our young people.
