Showing the impact of Bus Attacks

We’re very proud to have researched and created Thrown Away; a short film showing the impact that throwing bricks and rocks at buses has on passengers, drivers, and communities.

Working with young people guided us towards making something very hard-hitting. It also acknowledges risk taking behaviours, peer influences, and other issues affecting young people as anti-social behaviour is so nuanced. It’s no good “telling the young audience off” for something most of them would never do anyway! All part of a prevention strategy for young people at risk of such behaviours.

Following a successful pilot in schools, it will be rolled out locally accompanied by a suggested lesson plan and activities, with a wider public launch planned for early Autumn.

Thanks to Hull’s Youth Network for help along with partners Stagecoach, Hull City Council, Humberside Police, Hull and East Yorkshire Mind, and Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner for Humberside.
