We all have the right to feel safe

all the time.

We believe everyone has the right to be given the tools to enable this. The passion of Creative Optimistic Visions is to positively influence the life choices of children, young people and adults who are at risk (or not) of victimisation and abuse, as well as supporting families and professionals who work with them.


We provide alternative education, accredited training and wellbeing services through the lens of The Protective Behaviours Process. Creative Optimistic Visions is the leading provider for Protective Behaviours in Coventry and Warwickshire endorsed by Protective Behaviours Consortium, the national organisation for Protective Behaviours in the UK
