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. We provide a range of resources to help practitioners run local activities and events and promote safety messages in a fun and engaging way.

Events are held by a range of different organisations and individuals, including children’s centres, childminders, fire and rescue teams, hospitals, schools and many more.

Child Safety Week 2018 took place between 4th-10th June 2018. However you can still download the free Action Pack or order CAPT resources to keep the conversation going with the parents and families you work with.
