Lifewise, is a scenario-based learning facility, which benefits from a film-set environment, where educational inputs are delivered in a realistic setting.

The Centre runs a free Crucial Crew programme for all Year 6 school pupils in South Yorkshire. This provision extends to Special Educational Needs schools, Pupil Referral Units and Learning Centres. A number of partner organisations assist in delivering this programme which include; Magistrates in the Community, South Yorkshire Safer Roads Partnership and South Yorkshire Police and South Yorkshire Fire and Rescue.
