Safer People And Responsible Communities (SPARC) With The Fire & Rescue Service

Safer People And Responsible Communities (SPARC) helps to make communities in Dorset safer by working proactively with young people aged between 13 and 17 years of age. The course is designed for young people who have: offended or are at risk of offending, been excluded from school or are at risk of being excluded from school, and/or been the victims of crime, bullying etc. The project is delivered by specially trained firefighters and the main aim is to prevent young people from becoming persistent offenders or being permanently excluded from school. The course is specifically designed to challenge and change the attitude and behaviour of the young people. Over the five days of the course, each young person will gain fire fighting skills, team building skills, a portfolio of achievements, accreditation, greater self-esteem, fire and safety awareness, and career opportunities.
