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.

This years’ Child Safety Week ran from Monday 3rd June to Sunday 9th June 2019. 

The theme, Family life today: where’s the risk? highlighted the new dangers facing families today from our modern lifestyles and offers simple solutions to keep children safe.

Child Safety Week 2019 may be over but we still need your support throughout the rest of the year, to help raise awareness of the new dangers facing families today from our modern lifestyles and offer simple solutions to keep children safe.
