Here in South Wales Fire and Rescue Service we are passionate about working with young people and deliver a variety of youth intervention programmes aimed at those aged between 11 – 25 years.
Our Fire and Rescue Service has an important part to play in contributing to the well-being of children and young people by educating them about the importance of fire safety and the consequences of deliberate fires, hoax calls and anti-social behaviour. We do this through the Crimes and Consequences Project and the Firesetting Intervention Scheme.
Our Firefighters provide strong role models who inspire and positively influence young people and all of our interventions aim to increase confidence and self-esteem among young people with a view to improving their interpersonal and vocational skills and providing a sense of direction, self-respect and life skills, through the Phoenix Project and Fire Cadets.
Each of our interventions are delivered to meet specific objectives and are delivered in accordance with the ‘Fire and Rescue Authorities Strategy for Children and Young People’.
