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.
With just a little bit of a deeper understanding – understanding the ‘why’ as well as the ‘what’ – parents are much better placed to help protect their children from a serious accidental injury.
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 took place between 4th -10th June 2018. Dates for next year's #childsafetyweek will be announced soon.
