East Sussex Stay Safe Programme

This directory pulls together, for the first time, a variety of programmes and workshops which are currently being offered by a range of agencies and organisations and focus on different strands of community safety and personal safety such as cyberbullying and preventing extremism.

Over time we envisage that this will develop and extend to incorporate a wider range of partners.


The overall aims of this directory is:

  • To develop good quality preventative education and to collaborate with partners on the wider Community Safety Education and Awareness work in relation to risk, harm and threat to vulnerable young people.
  • To offer a current, modern and creative programme to young people on personal safety and community safety which is well planned and co-ordinated.
  • To provide a programme which provides up to date information and provides clear and factual advice and support on relevant and topical areas.

There are two age specific parts to the directory:

  • Primary School Programme
  • Secondary School/FE Programme
