Sharon visits Tyne and Wear Fire and Rescue Service's Safetyworks centre in Newcastle.
Following Sharon's speech in the Water Safety debate in Parliament, Sharon was invited by The Community Safety Adviser of the Tyne and Wear Fire and Rescue Service's "Safetyworks" in Newcastle.
SafetyWorks is an interactive safety centre operated by Tyne & Wear Fire and Rescue Service.
Using interactive life-size realistic-scenario reconstructions of Metro stations and road safety sets, etc, they deliver a number of different safety messages alongside external partners, including Nexus and the Police, for schools and community groups.
They also ran a summer-safety campaign which involved RNLI Lifeguards to deliver a session about being safe on the beach and in the sea.
Last year over 1400 students from 32 schools attend SafetyWorks from the Washington and Sunderland West area.
They participated in a programme covering personal safety and consequences of anti-social behaviour.
