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 will take place between 4th-10th June 2018. Meanwhile the 2017 Action Pack and CAPT resources can help you get the conversation started and build momentum with the parents and families you work with.
