P-A-U-L-Y  ‘Parents All United Lifesaving Youngsters’ was set up by Jackie Brealy after her son died in a car accident. Jackie hopes the organisation will educate youngsters and make them aware of the dangers of that may face them on the roads.

On 12th October 2012, Jackie’s  life changed forever when her son Paul, 24, lost his life in a car accident. He was a passenger and died instantly. The driver,25, also died.

Here is why Jackie set up P-A-U-L-Y
‘Nothing in the world can ever prepare you for losing a son, a brother, a grandson, a nephew or a best friend.  When you lose a child you also lose part of your life, and losing Paul was life changing for all of us.  Paul loved his family to bits and was a huge part of all our lives, and for my own and everyone else’s sake I wanted to do something to keep his memory alive, that would also help us to cope with the grief and devastation we were all feeling, and something from which we could all draw comfort knowing that Paul’s death hadn’t been completely in vain.’

When Jackie started looking at the statistics, she knew she had to do something to try and prevent so many youngsters from dying in road accidents.

-Car crashes are the number one cause of death for young people globally.
-Every day 2,000 people are injured on British roads, and 5 of them die.
-1 in 3 of all people who die on our roads is under 25.
-1 in every 5 young drivers has a crash within 6 months of passing their test.
-One fifth of all new drivers will have a serious collision in the first 5 years of driving.
-26,500 drivers under 25 are disqualified every year.

One of P-A-U-L-Y’s aims is to pay in full or part for as many young drivers as possible, to do the Pass Plus Driving Course once they have passed their Driving Test.
P-A-U-L-Y is looking for businesses to get involved, particularly driving Instructors. By signing up and subscribing for £20 a month to P-A-U-L-Y,  businesses will be given a free advertisement in their leaflet, and on their website. Find out more at  www.paulystaysafe.com
