YOUNG people across Greater Manchester are invited to get creative at home as part of this year’s Safe4Summer partnership campaign - which launched on the 1st of June.

The mini creative project is new to this year’s campaign in light of COVID-19 Government guidance and is aimed at those aged five to 16-years-old. The idea around the piece of ‘homework’ is to encourage young people to think about safety this summer in line with key themes highlighted through Safe4Summer – such as water safety, road safety and preventing anti-social behaviour, which includes deliberate fire-setting.

So, if you fancy getting creative by making a short film, a 3D model, collage or montage, or even drawing a picture, while helping keep people safe this summer then head to the Safe4Summer website.

While young people are off school - whether that be due to the COVID-19 pandemic or the scheduled summer holidays - there may be temptation for them to get involved in things that seem like harmless fun but can often lead to serious consequences.

This summer, GMP is asking the public to help make communities a safer and more enjoyable place to live, especially during these unprecedented times, and are encouraging parents and carers to remain aware of their children’s whereabouts and planned activities in line with the Government’s guidance, by maintaining a positive line of communication.

Check out the website as it contains details about this year’s campaign which covers Water Safety, preventing Anti-Social Behaviour (including Deliberate fires) and Road Safety. 

Plus, there is also a competition for 5-16 year olds in Greater Manchester to enter (iPad as a prize), and activities for young people, including a mini creative project.
