Justice Minister Claire Sugden said: “The Risk Avoidance and Danger Awareness Resource is a great example of partnership working between the Police, voluntary, community and private sectors.

“It provides children and young people a unique opportunity, in an interactive and informative way, to explore everyday dangers in our society such as cyber safety, anti-social behaviour, drugs or alcohol. By understanding the consequences of these dangers they learn to stay safe.

“Positive community relationships, improving quality of life, help to build safer communities with lower levels of crime and anti-social behaviour, and this is something we all want to see.”
