Arcade delivers interactive projects to schools providing drug and alcohol education
As an educational charity we also provide tailor made PSHE sessions looking at life-skills such as healthy choice making, peer pressure and self esteem. We also look at the risk and consequences surrounding drug and alcohol choices. ARCADE's passion is to provide active learning experiences and age appropriate drugs education to all young people in Berkshire and the surrounding area.
With over 20 years experience of delivering interactive life-skills based alcohol and drug education, we can tailor make sessions for schools, youth clubs and faith based organisations.
After each of our sessions we ask staff and pupils to evaluate our projects. Pupils report that they gain in confidence and information and feel empowered to make their own decisions. Pupils are able to remember who we are and the main message of our session's year on year as we revisit schools.

We also provide parent workshops and training for organisations such as Reading Street Pastors, Rehab, Loose ends etc.
