Coastal Safety Video

The CoastWise video highlights some of the dangers people may encounter on the coast and is generally directed at children but is really quite entertaining. The animation won an Academy of Interactive and Visual Arts 2017 Davey Award for Film/Video-Education.

Watch the CoastWise video here.

The video was coordinated by the Dorset Coast Forum (who are hosted by Dorset County Council) in partnership with SafeWise, the RNLI, HM Coastguard, Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site Team, the Fine Family Foundation and Love Love Film. 

The Dorset Coast Forum (DCF) is an independent strategic coastal partnership, which looks at the long term, broad-scale issues facing the Dorset coast and its inshore waters. The overriding aim of the Forum is to promote a sustainable approach to the management, use and development of Dorset’s coastal zone to ensure that its inherent natural and cultural qualities are maintained and enhanced for the benefit of future generations.

Established in 1995, DCF has a strong network of over 1000 members from over 260 organisations. We are effective in working in partnership to deliver social, economic and environmental benefits to the Dorset coast, from Lyme Regis to Christchurch. Our members are from the public, charity and private sectors including local authorities, fishing representatives, commercial businesses, environmental, recreational, historical, maritime, business and tourism sectors.

DCF has a core team who are hosted by Dorset County Council and based at County Hall in Dorchester. The team works with DCF members to deliver projects and distribute relevant, up to date information.
