LEARNING ABOUT THE DANGERS OF DRINK DRIVING IS INVALUABLE AT ANY AGE

Workshops and facts inform important decisions through adult life - thIs page contains details of workshops and some shocking facts about drink and drug related driving fatalities.

ANTI-DRINK-DRIVE WORKSHOPS

CADD is uniquely placed as the only registered charity in the UK dedicated to combatting the problem of drink and drug driving.

As many of our members are victims of drunken and irresponsible drivers, we know at first hand the dangers of driving when unfit due to an excess of drugs, especially alcohol.

Our thought-provoking workshops are very popular with many organizations where drink-driving is a particular problem. Such organizations include, but are not limited to, the armed forces, transport companies such as haulage, taxi and bus companies, insurance firms and all companies with fleet vehicles.

WHAT MAKES OUR WORKSHOPS SO POPULAR?


Our hard-hitting workshops are very popular with many organizations where drink-driving is a particular problem. Such organizations include, but are not limited to, the armed forces, transport companies such as haulage, taxi and bus companies, insurance firms and all companies with fleet vehicles.


The workshops can be specially tailored to meet any needs, but tend to follow the format of:

A one-hour interactive multimedia presentation involving the facilitator and the audience

Followed by a 20-minute comfort break

Followed by a one-hour personal presentation by a victim of drink and/or drug driving

And finally, an opportunity for discussion and questions and answers from the floor

At the end of the workshop, participants are invited to sign a CADD safe-driver contract - for more details on this unique initiative, please follow the link below.


We welcome groups of any size - our facilitators can visit you at your site anywhere in the United Kingdom, or we can hold the workshop in our conference room at our offices at the RCM Business Centre, Dewsbury Road, Ossett, depending on your preference.

If you would be interested in having a workshop from CADD for your organization, please contact us to discuss availability, your specific needs and costings.

CADD IMPACT WORKSHOPS FOR SCHOOLS AND OTHER INSTITUTIONS


The workshops CADD offers are tailor made for each audience. Content will be decided by the school and CADD. We can focus on different aspects of road/ car crime and social responsibility and can cover all aspects within any given workshop. Subjects you may like us to cover can include drink driving, speeding, stolen cars, underage driving or driving without documentation.


We work with Schools (years 7 through to 11), 6th form Colleges, Youth Clubs, After School Clubs, School Projects, Pupil Referral Units, Secure Units, N.A.C.R.O. and with Youth Offending teams all over the Country. We also work with the Prison Service. In addition we offer training to Family Liaison Officers and Traffic Police.

The School ‘Impact’ workshop consists of:

Introduction and caution of the emotional content

Show the SCARD/South Yorkshire Police video, “Stolen Cars, Stolen Lives”

Personal story from a REAL VICTIM battling with all the effects that a road/car crime and death/or injury can have on an individual/ families and community

Questions/ Feedback/ comments/ observations and the opportunity to look at sentencing policies and the unacceptability of road crime in general.


Following the presentation, evaluation sheets will be given out to supervisors and course attendees which we would appreciate you filling in to give us an idea of your impressions of the presentation and how useful you found it.

CADD workshops have been very well received by all participants and are without doubt very thought provoking. Feedback from young people and from tutors confirms that there is a desperate need for this very important service that we offer.

Our workshops provide funding for all the other services we offer and donations can be negotiable by “workshop” or by the “day”.

The workshops are run in association with our sister organisation S.C.A.R.D (Support and Care After Road Death and injury)

CADD IMPACT WORKSHOPS FOR SCHOOLS - DELIVERY OF WORKSHOPS


Resources Needed for the Presentation :-

Projector/Screen or large television with Video player.

Airy comfortable room with seating for all attending students and observers.


Please note. There is no restriction on the number of attendees but the room must be suitable for the numbers attending and seating must be provided for all. Most workshops consist of 20 to 30 students with at least one accompanying teacher, however two teachers would be ideal. We have delivered workshops to a maximum of 200 pupils in one session. Thought must also be given to students attending. Students with emotional/ behavioural or attention deficit problems may benefit from smaller workshops of between 6 to 12 students.


The Delivery

Please note the delivery time required for our workshop is approximately 50 minutes, as students must be given the opportunity to “de-brief” on the information discussed. We would consider it useful if the School could be slightly flexible on timing. As we work within strict time limits, punctuality is vital from everyone. We respectfully request that workshops are not interrupted whilst in progress as it is important to maintain the flow and any disruption, for example, people coming in or out, can be quite “off putting” for students listening and also for victims who may be relating very emotional details and feelings. If you require more than 2 workshops in any one day, 2 victims will attend the day and they will alternate the sessions.

SOME SHOCKING FACTS ABOUT DRINKING AND DRIVING


Provisional estimates for 2017 show that between 240 and 330 people were killed in accidents in Great Britain where at least one driver was over the drink-drive limit, with a central estimate of 290 deaths.

An estimated 8,660 people were killed or injured when at least one driver was over the drink-drive limit.

The total number of accidents where at least one driver was over the alcohol limit was 5,730 in 2017.


The provisional central estimate of the number of deaths in accidents with at least one driver over the alcohol limit for 2017 is 290. This represents about 16% of all deaths in reported road accidents in 2017.

The central estimate of the number of drink-drive casualties of all severities in 2017 is 8,660.

It is provisionally estimated that around 5% of all casualties in reported road accidents in 2017 were involved in accidents in which at least one driver or rider was over the drink-drive limit.


(NB: although these figures are generally accepted they are believed to be a vast underestimate of the casualties actually caused by drug driving - see below)

Other research confirms that the problem of drug-driving is widespread, linked to increasing use of illegal drugs.
