Children continue to die or be seriously injured on our roads, but with budgets and resources tightly stretched, it can be hard to deliver child road safety. However, even in these hard-pressed times, some areas are finding creative, collaborative ways to deliver services with significant impacts by maximising shared resources.

Hosted by Bradford Metropolitan District Council in conjunction with the Child Accident Prevention Trust, and with funding from the Department for Transport, this FREE seminar is an opportunity for service providers and commissioners to come together and think ‘outside the silos’ about linking up services to save children’s lives on the roads. It will be chance to identify the barriers and consider the most practical ways to overcome these.

This event is aimed at everyone with an opportunity to influence or determine ways of working between departments, across local authority boundaries or by bringing together the not for profit sector with the statutory sector.

This includes:

  • Road safety - both engineering and ETP
  • Public health
  • Trauma care
  • Fire and rescue service
  • Education and Children’s services
  • Charities working with children and families

The day will combine a range of short presentations from areas who have created innovative joint working programmes, and will share both the opportunities and the challenges they’ve faced.

There will also be opportunities for questions, facilitated discussions, networking and exchanging information.

During the lunch hour there will be a marketplace and you are encouraged to bring along and share materials about any innovative road safety work you are involved with. 

We asked participants what they found helpful about our last seminar in Birmingham. Here are some of the replies: 

The vast amount of experience in the room and the willingness to share ideas along with the opportunity to network’
‘Understanding what is delivered in other areas of the country, and how issues are addressed’
‘The breadth of presentations, chance to ask questions and meet others working on similar projects‘
 ‘New to road safety so great to get an overall picture of child pedestrian safety, as well as collaboration and barriers to collaboration’
