Family Safety Week

2018 Theme: Brighter Beginnings

Accidents are the biggest killer of children and young people. Every week at least one child under-5 is killed because of an accident, with disadvantaged children most at risk.

So we’re shining a spotlight on simple things you can do to stop your child becoming an accident statistic. We’ll also share advice on good safety habits to get into, and the things you really need to buy to help keep your little ones safe.

We will be out and about during the week getting out the first of our Keeping Kids Safe packs and spreading safety messages, in person, or via our social media channels. But we need your help too! Whether you're a parent or carer, a grandparent, a health visitor, a nursery nurse, or a company, you can get involved. You could run a family safety day for your staff, put on a child safety session for parents, or simply share our resources and tips with friends or on social media. Who knows? You could save a little life!

"Preventing accidents isn't about overzealous rules and regulations - it is about looking after the ones you love. I know how crucial it is to get the balance right."
