Keeping yourself safe

To keep yourself safe you need to make sure you are aware of all the potential dangers you come into contact with. The older you get and the more freedom you have, the more you will have to make sure you take care of yourself.

Keeping yourself safe doesn't just mean phoning home if you're out later than you expected, it's thinking about what and who around you could present any sort of risk.

Who can help
