WHAT WE DO

The Brave Bear Trust raises awareness among children aged eight to ten and their supporting adults through the story of a bear called Brave and a range of accompanying resources.

We seek to engage, educate, empower, and equip children to know how to keep themselves and others safe from exploitation.

We work with educators, parents, carers and the wider community to equip these trusted adults to discern and combat the often unrecognised signs of exploitation among them, through our resources and training.

We strive to co-produce with children, professionals, parents and carers.

Endorsements:

“I read the book with my children (ages 11, 9, and 6). They really enjoyed it! The storyline was easy to follow and clear in its portrayal of the injustice happening without being too graphic.”  Parent.

“The Wales Police Schools Programme officers have recently been trained by Heather Lewis, from the Brave Bear Trust.  The training is essential to further the officers understanding of exploitation and its extent and impact on children.   Armed with this knowledge they can raise awareness among the school children they reach, so they can recognise the signs and keep themselves safe. A well-presented and challenging presentation!”  Wales National Police Force.
