Brake - 2young2die

NFYFC teamed up with road safety charity Brake to offer loads of resources to help clubs get involved with the Drive It Home campaign.

Brake Area Training

Brake has agreed to deliver one of their 2young2die courses in each Area of the Federation. The course helps young people consider the carnage and global warming caused by driving, their options as drivers, passengers or non-drivers, and encourages them to campaign to end dangerous, unnecessary driving. Read Milly Wastie's experience of attending one of these sessions. 

The sessions are an interactive way of learning how to stay safe on the roads and are totally free thanks to sponsorship from NFU Mutual and The Rural Youth Trust.

Attending one of these courses, will make you one of our 'Drive It Home Champions' and will provide the resources to run a road safety session in your club or county. The sessions have been adapted especially for young farmers who will most likely be delivering courses in areas without internet access.

A maximum of 25 people can attend each course, so don't miss out on your free place! The sessions run from 11-4pm and include refreshments.

Other Brake Courses

If you are unable to attend one of these events, NFU Mutual is also funding one member from each county to attend one of the national '2young2die' courses, which will teach you how to plan your own road safety campaigns in your community.

No experience is necessary to attend the course, but you do need a passion for improving road safety in your local area. As well as the one-day course, you will get a comprehensive guide to leading your own workshops, access to all the resources on the Brake site, and a free resource pack to help you engage young people in your workshops. You also get a free year's subscription to Brake's Road Safety Forum, giving you updates on road safety research from around the globe.

To help us measure the real impact of this campaign, any YFC member attending any of the '2young2die' course will be asked to fill out a short questionnaire.

For more information and to book places, please contact Christina.evans@nfyfc.org.uk

Brake Club Night

Something that every club can do to spread the word about rural road safety is to book an evening in your club programme to learn more about how to stay safe.

Brake has provided NFYFC with a slide show session that clubs can use to introduce road safety issues to your club members. To access this resource please contact Jodie.green@nfyfc.org.uk and it will be emailed out to you.

Clubs can also invite an expert speaker from Brake to come and deliver a workshop in their club. Just email 2young2die@brake.org.uk with an approximate date and location and they can find a trained volunteer to visit your club.
