Child Safety Week runs from 3 to 9 June 2019 with the aim of reducing the numbers of Scottish children killed or seriously injured by accidents.
Free printed accident prevention resources are available for anyone in Scotland working with families and children, but you need to sign up to get yours (at www.capt.org.uk/child-safety-week). It takes a few moments – so don’t miss out.
Around 40% of (non-neonatal) deaths of Scottish children under 15 are a result of unintentional harm. So many of these accidents can be prevented through simple changes in family routines and behaviour. The first step is awareness of the real risks to children in the home and out and about.
This is why it is so beneficial to register for a free Child Safety Week pack. There’s no obligation, it takes a few moments and it means you’ll receive the latest information about the most serious accidents and the simple things families and carers can learn that help to prevent them.
You can find out more about Child Safety Week, and the resources available, from the Child Accident Prevention Trust website www.capt.org.uk/child-safety-week
