About the Ambassador Programme

  

The Keep Safe Ambassador programme was developed in partnership with Police Scotland and I Am Me Scotland. The programme was launched in Renfrewshire in November 2015 with young people from Castlehead High School and St. Aloysius College, and was opened to schools in Renfrewshire in 2016. The training can be delivered to young people, adults with learning disabilities or Police Scotland Youth Volunteers.


The programme is FREE and is now delivered in High Schools and disability groups throughout Scotland! 


Keep Safe Ambassadors are trained to: 

  • Understand the impact bullying and hate crime has on an individual, their family and the wider community.
  • Know how to recognise incidents of hate crime within the community and within school/centre environment, and how to report them safely. 
  • Know what Keep Safe is and how to support it. 

The Keep Safe Ambassador programme consists of one full day of training and is delivered in partnership with Police Scotland. The programme is also supported by the Crown Office and Procurator Fiscal Services. A certificate and badge are provided to each participant at the end of the training session.
