Safe Ground - Using drama to educate prisoners and young people at risk in the community



In 2017 we worked in partnership with Catalyst Housing.

Safe Ground ran Man Up at Blackbird Leys community centre from the 23rd to the 25th of October. The programme was facilitated by one Safe Ground facilitator and one freelance facilitator. Recruitment for the programme was difficult following the summer the staff and young people associated with the community development initiative (CDI) had.

Nevertheless, staff from the CDI commented on the effectiveness of the methodology to engage participants and enhance discussion, debating and listening skills. They recommended the Man Up approach to learning for delivery in varied youth, adult and inter-generational settings,like youth clubs and community centres.
