Child Safety Week 4 - 10 June 2018
Published on 1 June 2018 by Sarah Dunne
The theme for this years Child Safety Week is - Safe children: together we’ve got this!
What is the theme for?
For parents it’s easy to feel overwhelmed by the demands that come with family life and keeping children safe can feel very challenging. For practitioners the reality is that there are fewer staff and less resource than ever, so child safety can seem a challenge to effectively address.
Child Safety Week is here to help simplify the issues and highlight the quick win’s and most effective ways to have an impact. Parents can get advice to help them feel confident and make child safety part of daily life and practitioners can get support and work together with key partners to have impact locally. It is about promoting the safety message and using the resources available.
The Child Accident Prevention Trust (CAPT) have lots of information and resources about Child Safety Week on their website including an action pack and poster. There are also specific posters that can be downloaded (e.g. choking, road safety, burns, drowning, partnership working).
There is also lots of information and links on our Child Safety page.
