Risk-Avert was developed by Essex County Council and The Training Effect (a provider of school-based interventions focusing on risk-taking behaviours, emotional health, wellbeing and PSHE). It  is a multicomponent school based intervention targeting secondary school children aged 12 and 13 years old. The programme seeks to contribute to the improvement of young people’s health and wellbeing, empowering them to effectively manage risk and achieve positive outcomes. The programme focuses on the drivers behind behaviour and on supporting young people to develop practical skills to enable them to effectively manage risks they may encounter in everyday life.
