Helping Our Community

Road safety

We deliver Road Safety education in Schools and Excluded units across South Yorkshire, teaching young people about the risk of dangerous driving, such as driving under the influence of drink or drugs, not wearing a seat belt and using a mobile phone at the wheel.

This is important work for us, as this age group are becoming new road users and can be easily influenced by their peers. We have seen the devastating consequences of irresponsible driving and are working hard to prevent this.

If you would like us to run a session at your school or organisation, leave us a message on 0114 227 0105 or send us an email at info@hope-sy.org.uk.

Home safety

We work alongside South Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service’s, Safe and Well service, to check with people if they have working smoke alarms. Smoke alarms are incredibly important in alerting residents of danger and are proven to increase survival in the event of a house fire. Smoke alarms are easy to install and require little maintenance, but one day could save you and your family’s life.

Have you tested your smoke alarm this month?

Take 2 minutes to test it now. Press the test button – you should be able to hear it from all parts of your home. Also check that it is free from dust. You should check your smoke alarm once a month.

If you would like to organise a home safety check, call us on 0114 227 0105 or email us at info@hope-sy.org.uk.
