Travel Education and Resources for World Travellers
An important part of our work is to provide educational materials and inspirational talks to future world travellers, and to offer support to 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, we are working to equip these young travellers with the essential knowledge that they need to stay safe and have fantastic adventures.
CRF's Presentations usually run for about an hour and include a 15 minute question and answer session at the end. The verbal presentations are accompanied by a power point presentation demonstrating the travel opportunities the speaker has experienced. The slides are interlaced with practical visuals to highlight travel safety, awareness strategies and risk assessments as well as preparation and research schedules. Our aim is to stimulate and inspire students by showing them the amazing travel opportunities available to them, as well as engaging them with safety techniques and raising awareness of potential dangers.
The presentations are given free of charge but travel costs must be covered and if you would like to make a donation to help us continue our travel safety awareness campaign, you are more than welcome. Thank You.

We were thrilled to welcome Richard Stuttle to All Saints this October as part of our PSHE programme for the Sixth Form. The theme of the day was ‘Life After All Saints’ and our aim was to inspire students to think creatively about their futures. As a keen traveller myself, I actively encourage my students to see the wonderful world around them – but to do so safely is an essential message. Richard’s presentation perfectly echoed these sentiments. The images used excited students and Richard’s message of mindfulness is highly relevant. He encouraged them to step away from their smart phones, switch off social media and be present in the moment – advice that really resonated. Of course, the message of safe, well-planned and thoughtful travel is imperative to the work of Caroline’s Rainbow Foundation. Feedback from students highlighted their appreciation that effective planning can result in safer and perhaps even more enjoyable travel. We were so pleased to be able to support the fantastic work of Caroline’s Rainbow Foundation, promoting the joy of travel while furnishing students with the information and skills to do it safely.
