    “Youth Highland is supportive of The Scottish Centre for Personal Safety and would be keen to work in partnership. We foresee the following benefits to young people in the Highlands:

    • Increased confidence and skills of young people (and people supporting young people) in issues around personal safety.

    • Increased quality of training opportunities for young people in Highland.

    • Improved partnership between youth organisations and other agencies responsible for safety and crime prevention.

    “I cannot stress enough about how beneficial I felt the course was. I would recommend any support worker as well as service users should attend this training, which I feel would help to empower them to feel stronger, independent and less intimidated. God help anyone who attacks me in the future!!!!”

  • “The workshops served to increase the students awareness of self defence issues and the practical aspects of the programme gave the students hands on experience of what to do in a threatening situation.

    “The workshops served to increase the students awareness of self defence issues and the practical aspects of the programme gave the students hands on experience of what to do in a threatening situation.

    The programme itself covered aspects of self defence ranging from how to deal and respond to unwanted behaviour verbally, to more serious incidents such as the actions to follow if a sexual assault was being committed. While some of the students preferred to sit back and watch some of the activities, as they found them too intense, the sessions have unquestionably raised awareness of self defence issues.

    The incidence of attacks was also covered to inform students of the types of attacks which occurred most frequency in the local area as well as giving statistics to reassure the students that physical / sexual attacks are not as common as some had perceived which served to reduce the ‘fear of attack’ culture many in society believe to be true today.

    Overall the sessions were well planned and designed and the training techniques used were appropriate for the student groups concerned. The friendly approach that instructors used ensured the students responded positively when participating within the workshops despite the seriousness of the subjects being covered.

    On a more personal note, these sessions should be made readily available to all young people in order to increase their personal awareness skills. Introducing training sessions into schools / colleges as a matter of course can only benefit the students by giving them advice they need to protect themselves and who might otherwise become victims of crime.”
