I had a great day today, at the Lifewise Centre working with the Cutlers' "Made in Sheffield" Ambassadors on another day of their training programme.

The Lifewise Centre is an interactive learning centre for South Yorkshire communities. Featuring a purpose-built film-set, it is used to educate visitors about safety and citizenship with the ultimate aim of reducing crime and improving quality of life. It is an amazing place with three multi-function modern classrooms, the largest of which can seat 85 people, houses, shops, a transport Interchange - with full-size bus. cars, a park, a police station - with cell and custody area, a fire station, a court house, an NHS Accident and Emergency department with GP room and ward, an electrical sub-station, internet café and Busters’ Café. 

The Centre is a unique collaboration between South Yorkshire Police, South Yorkshire Fire and Rescue, the NHS, the Safer Roads Partnership, Barnsley Metropolitan Borough Council, Doncaster Metropolitan Borough Council, Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council, Sheffield City Council and the South Yorkshire Passenger Transport Executive.

The Ambassadors completed a series of workshops focused on developing team building, health and safety, internet safety, appropriate dress and interview techniques.
