Accidents are the leading cause of preventable harm and death for children and young people, which is particularly distressing, when many accidents are preventable.
Child Safety Week is an annual campaign run by the Child Accident Prevention Trust (CAPT) and this year’s theme for Child Safety Week is “Safety in Mind”.
Child Accident Prevention Trust (CAPT) have produced resources to share with families as part of Child Safety Week and their resources include advice on key areas such as how to prevent choking, falls, poisoning and burns as well as promoting the importance of water and road safety.
Five fact sheets have also been translated into Urdu, Bengali, Panjabi, Polish, Romanian, Somali and Arabic – for speakers of English as an additional language.
