Prison! Me! No-Way!

Derek Taylor and Kate Hancocks from Shropshire Fire and Rescue Service Risk Reduction Team have taken part in “Prison! Me! No-Way!” workshops at Marches School and Technology College, Oswestry on 21st June 2001 and Wrockwardine Wood Arts College 14th July2011, together with West Mercia Police, drugs workers and prison officers.

The SFRS workshop was based on “Know Fear” a true life experience of a young man paralysed after being involved in a collision with a stolen vehicle. It is based on consequences of actions and how lives may be prevented from being ruined.

The No Way Trust is a national educational charity set up in 1995 by prison officers who wanted to make an impact on the lives of young people and turn them away from crime and its consequences using highly innovative educational techniques. It provides a quality service to help young people make a success of their lives, using an innovative, fresh approach that encourages a positive decision making process, designed to reduce or remove the possibility of offending behaviour.

The work supports Citizenship Key Stage 3 criteria.

The Trust’s core aim is to raise the awareness amongst young people about the causes, consequences and penalties of crime, and the effects of antisocial behaviour.

The No Way Trust has so far reached over 4.5 million young people through the hard work and sheer determination of its volunteers.
