Family Safety Week, May 2-5, 2017

This week the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) launch their Family Safety Week which is focusing on protecting some of the most vulnerable members of the community — babies, toddlers and children under five.

Accidents are the biggest killer of children and young people.

Every week at least one child under five is killed because of an accident, with disadvantaged children most at risk.

Please visit RoSPA’s website for lots of facts, tips, advice and free resources to help keep children safe.
