Local Contacts

Road safety is a local issue; the Government provides local authorities with funding to support road safety work. Many counties have a road safety partnership or road safety team that exist to reduce the number of casualties on the roads. We have collated a list of your local road safety teams in order for you to make contact and access their resources to support the Drive it Home campaign by raising awareness of road safety within your YFC. Where we have made contact with a local partner directly, their name and contact details are listed. If you would like support in contacting your local partnership to arrange a road safety session please contact your county office or by emailing Jodie Green.

What do we do

Road Safety Officers will disseminate good ideas to schools, colleges and other organisations that may relate to children or adults. Training teachers and governors is one of the best ways of delivering an effective service. However where teachers and governors are not prepared to take on this role it may be necessary for Road Safety Officers to carry out this work directly in schools. Driver education and adult education are also areas in which the road safety officer will be able to give considerable help and advice, working with employers to ensure the safety of staff while using the road and managing their occupational road risk.
