Launch of the D-i Trademark logo

The logo was one of the original designs that was never released in 2001, when it was first thought The Drop Inn needed one. There was a few different designs. But the one that is used from now was one that got shelved for 6 years. When it was re-descovered it was smartened up a bit and put in front of the Youth first, who Liked it. Then the logo was put in front of the rest of the Managers and trustees. Everyone was pleased with the symbol so it slowly started to get used, with stickers as the first main form of cheap branding.

First Aid Course [session of The Fire Project]

As part of the Fire project you were also taught the basics of life saving. A group of paramedics came in to teach a session on life saving and the steps you have to take to ensure your safety comes first, then you can aid the person or people at an emergency scene.

Fire Project
Originally uploaded by thedropinn

The project was a partnership between the Drop Inn and Derbyshire Fire Service - Belper Fire Station. It is the second time we have run this project concentrating on road traffic collisions. A session with paramedics showing equipment and first aid was included. DVD and discussion sessions highlighted effects crashes have on not only the car occupants but on their families, friends and witnesses. A mock car crash was set up and young people were cut out of the wreckage - it was a scary experience for participants and audience. Very effective project which we are hoping to run again in the near future.
