Norfolk: Volunteers Wanted For Road Safety Scheme

Volunteers are being asked to come forward to help with a new road safety campaign in Norfolk.

 As part of Norfolk County Council’s ‘Keep Your Mind on the Road’ campaign, the council is looking for residents to come forward and become road safety volunteers in their community.

 Whether teaching cycling and pedestrian safety to children, helping to promote the proper fitting of child car seats, or helping deliver workshops to younger drivers, the County Council is looking to encourage communities in Norfolk to take collective action to help make their roads safer by helping better educate fellow residents.

This volunteer work would complement the valued Road Safety work that the council delivers right across Norfolk.

Alec Byrne, Chairman of Norfolk Casualty Reduction Partnership, said:

“We know that there is a strength of feeling in Norfolk for communities to play more of a role in activities and services that affect their area.

 “As a road safety volunteer, residents will be trained to provide guidance and training to adults and children in their area, increasing road safety awareness at a local level and further building on the work that our Road Safety Officers do.

 “Volunteers will be supported by the County Council’s road safety team and volunteering can be shaped around the person’s lifestyle and commitments.”

 Residents who are interested in becoming a road safety volunteer in their community are asked to call 0344 800 8020 or visit www.norfolk.gov.uk/mindtheroad  to find out more and register.
