Community Safety Award

The Duke of Cornwall Community Safety Award was launched in response to significant flooding in Cornwall in recent years.

The award aims to educate and train young people to assist before, during and after a crisis.  It was developed to give young people in the UK an opportunity to learn what to do in an emergency situation, such as severe weather, a pandemic or long term powercut. The award is open to young people between the ages of 5 and 18.
