An Introduction to our World

Award winning EGAR (Educational Games and Resources) is dedicated to the art of comunication, conversation and the value of talking. We design structured education resources for intervention and prevention work, covering health, crime prevention, personal development, citizenship and the environment.

We have an expanding range of SEAL/PSHE Lets Get Talking 'Choice' Discussion card sets and Message Display Posters for youth workers, mentors, teachers, counsellors and parents to use to help them get children and young people talking about the issues that matter in their lives. Thus creating better decision making and healthy informed choices, leading to better lives and well being.

EGAR resources help children and young people to learn about themselves and the world around them. All resources have been tried and tested in Islington and Camden schools and youth clubs with positive testimonials on our website

The Chair of the London Assembly Darren Johnson has given EGAR this great endorsement and was highly impressed with the resources when he visited our offices:

'EGAR produce interactive educational games for young people, which are designed to stimulate structured discussion on vital topics for yound people, such as knives, climate change and drugs.This excellent project deserves much wider recognition and i would love to see it made available to all London based Youth Services'

We have also been nominated for a number of prestigious awards regarding the EGAR product.

To name but a few:

Special Recognition - British Female Inventions and Innovations awards
Nominated National Finalist - Blackberry Women and Technology awards
Nominated National Finalist - Womens Inspiration awards in association with Breakthrough Breast Cancer

We will delve deeper into the motives behind the EGAR products creation and provide insight into what the product can achieve in practice next blog.

But for now remember 'The strength of a country lies in its youth'
