Patricia McLaughlin

Parks Development Manager, Harrogate Borough Council

"The Sk8 Safe work has included etiquette training, the Ambassador programme and organising the annual skate jam. These programmes and events have proved invaluable in aiding the management of our Skate Park and hopefully ensuring Skate Park users feel engaged and have a sense of ownership.”

James Mawson


Forest School Leader

"You could see straight away how the programme impacts positively on the child’s self-esteem and confidence."

Ian Jessop

Team Leader: Integrated Youth Services, Kirklees Council
"We had five of our Kirklees Adventurous Activity Team staff complete the Sk8 Safe Level 2 Skateboard coaching course. The course was well run and resourced, the teaching and coaching was excellent but more importantly the knowledge and enthusiasm of Sarah and the Sk8 Safe staff was inspirational."

Senior Project Worker :
Barnardo's Disability and Inclusion Support Service.

"We initially accessed Skate Safe through Sports Development in Darlington but have since asked them to come back to the group as the young people really enjoyed the sessions. I would have no hesitation in recommending Sk8 Safe"

Jill Boulsfield

Enrichment Week Co-ordinator

"I and most of the other lads liked skateboarding, it’s a good laugh and you can overcome your fears on the ramps.  It’s really good and it’s a thing to look forward to at the end of the week or day. Aycliffe Secure Young People’s Centre is now able to facilitate this activity independently and we would have no hesitation in recommending Sk8 Safe."

Zoe Seir

Manager: Hampshire County Council Children Services.

"The trainers are better than excellent and instilled passion in all despite some people being terrified. This soon was forgotten and it was amazing to see how people had progressed later in the day. You folks get my NUMBER ONE VOTE anytime – Thank-you!"

Allen Peila

Mother of Sk8 Safe pupil, Sam

"He was fairly new to skateboarding… since he’s started he’s never looked back. He just thoroughly enjoys it and it’s just become a part of his life."

Tracy Sheilds

Extended School Services, Thirsk.

"There’s always a number of people who want to do it and Sk8 Safe can teach you properly.
I think kids get the confidence to actually go to the skate park, which is really important."

Carolin Mullens

Mother of a Thirsk Skate Park Ambassador

"Well done Sk8 safe for bringing together the young people of Thirsk and the surrounding areas and giving them something to be proud of."

Amanda Jane Agar

"It came across that the company knew exactly what they were doing."

Tim Stout

"Excellent teaching methods, loved getting back on a Skateboard after years."
