There can be so many risks inside and outside the home, it can be hard to keep track of them all. For instance, did you know that falls are one of the most common causes of childhood accidents?
We want children to lead active, healthy lives. Children need to experiment, play and take risks. But there’s a balance to be struck. No parent wants their child disabled or killed in an accident that can be prevented.
95% of all childhood burns and scalds happen at home. Most are caused in the day-to-day situations that many parents don’t anticipate, like children reaching for hot coffee or stepping on hair straighteners.
We offer a range of well priced resources and publications that have been created specifically for professionals working with families.
Our training helps your workforce make the most of every contact with parents and carers, and offer consistent, evidence-based advice on child safety.
Child Safety Week is run by Child Accident Prevention Trust to raise awareness of the risks of child accidents and how they can be prevented. Child Safety Week 2018 will take place between 4th-10th June 2018.
