Hair straighteners education pack

About the pack

The hair straighteners education pack will guide you through running effective, engaging discussions with parents and carers, exploring the dangers and the best ways to protect young children from preventable burns.

It is very easy-to-use – even if you’ve no knowledge of preventing burns or limited experience of facilitating groups. It offers maximum flexibility – use one or more of the cards to run anything from a bite-size discussion to a longer session. And you can use it over and over again – just order more flyers.

The pack contains:
