Yvonne joined the London Fire Brigade who were running the LIFE Programme for a group of young people in Haringey in February.
Local Intervention Fire Education (LIFE) is a 4 or 5 day programme for 14–17-year-olds at a fire station in your area. It is an interactive experience for young people who have faced challenges, to learn transferable skills through firefighting activities.
Yvonne says “This is a terrific programme run by LFB for young people in London. The trainers are amazing and really inspirational. Feedback from the young people is really positive with some thinking about joining the cadets next year and others now embracing life’s opportunities and thinking of alternative pathways for good.”
