A UK registered charity working to raise awareness of the importance of safer travel, whether going abroad for independent travel, gap year placements, organised trips or simply making plans to visit a different country. The charity aims to provide essential information about safety abroad and encourage people to recognise and prioritise life’s values, wherever they may be in the world.
Safer Travel App
In 2012, we celebrated our 10 year anniversary and to keep up with the nomadic lives of travellers, we decided to create a Safer Travel App for Apple and Android devices.
The App is available to download now.
The Safer Travel App is an easily accessible source of essential information about travel destinations around the globe. It’s packed with specific information about tourist and backpacker destinations, providing travel safety tips as well as suggesting must-see highlights and attractions. There are also a number of helpful website links and interactive maps included, along with information about local and annual events and other practical tips.
Our aim for this project is to provide specific information for popular tourist destinations. We are continuously updating and expanding the Safer Travel App to cover more destinations and backpacking routes. Ultimately, we want to cover every travel destination around the world!
Our aim is to become the number one resource for travel safety information and advice.
Education – Talking Travel
An important part of our work is to provide educational materials to young people and support teachers in raising awareness about travelling safely. Statistically, increasing numbers of young people and students in the UK are taking gap years.
Through the provision of travel education and advice, CRF is working to equip these young travellers with the essential knowledge that they need to stay safe and have fantastic adventures.
Our presentations are offered primarily to Schools, Colleges and Universities. We have trained – and are continuing to train – experienced travellers across the UK to facilitate some of these discussions in the form of talks and discussion with students, highlighting the benefits and pitfalls of world travel.
Making a donation is just one of the many ways you can help Caroline’s Rainbow Foundation. All donations that CRF receive go towards supporting our Charity Aims and ambitious long term visions. Without this support, none of our work would be possible.
We are also lucky to have a fantastic team of dedicated volunteers who organise events during the year to raise awareness of CRF and aid our funding. If you are passionate about safer travel and would like to become part of our team, please get in touch.
