We are an educational charity that raises awareness into the harmful effects of drugs, tobacco, alcohol and gambling.
We produce a wide range of informative literature including leaflets, worksheets and booklets that are age appropraite for all Key Stages that are suitable for use in schools, colleges and work projects.
There are a number of service provision we can provide including:-
Community Health information displays: This scheme aims to empower people with the knowledge to make informed decisions about thier welbeing and lifestyle. It loans informative display boards and leaflets to various establishments free of charge, who wish to raise awareness of national and international awareness events including Dry January, No Smoking Day, Alcohol Awareness Week, Road Safety week and Stoptober. Each month the scheme focuses on a different event. These boards will be delivered and collected by a member of the White Ribbon team.
Some of the setting where our display board have been used include primary schools, secondary schools, sixth form hubs, libraries, GP surgeries, Pharmacies, colleges and employability services. Our boards for Children use cartoon characters to share the health information regarding varoius topics throughout the year.
Health Event Stands:- For a nominal charge we can come into your school, college, or organisation and deliver a health event stand. This involves focussing on one of the topics, displaying information boards and undertaking activities with people who visit the stand and want information. The stand is visually appealing with lots of visual displays to view. Members of our team are at the stand to guide visitors through the information, activities and answer any questions. This is an informal approach for health promotion messages to be shared to a larger audience on a drop in basis. Popular bookings have been for college freshers and health fairs, in Pharmacies or as a citizenship curriculum module.
Health Champions Scheme: The aim of this scheme is to equip individuals with the skills to promote health awareness in regards to our four core topics of drugs, tobacco, alcohol and gambling to their communty and peers. Individuals take the lead in deciding which topic they want to campaign about. Our Development Officer provides a mentoring role during the campaign with regular progress meetings and email support. Each individual who takes part in the scheme will receive a branded goodie bag and certificate of participation.
Awareness Sessions: For a nominal charge our Development Officers can offer tailor made sessions on the the topics of drugs, alcohol, tobacco and gambling. The sessions are available to all Key Stages and delivery of the information is done in a fun, exciting and interactive way using a variety of visual aids, including DVD and activities.
Leaflets:- There are a number of informative leaflets surrounding our four topics that are available to download from our web-site.
Workpacks:- We have developed a range of teaching resources that provide the tools, activities and information for an individual to deliver a session based around either drugs, alcohol, tobacco or gambling. The contents of these packs include a memory stick with PowerPoint, facilitators manual, student workbook (with photocopying rights). These packs aim to be interactive when resources are limited ie no access to visual aids by using quizes, case studies and discussions.
