Child Safety Week

21st March 2016

6th - 12th June 2016

Child Safety Week (6-12 June 2016) is the Child Action Prevention Trust (CAPT) annual campaign to reduce serious childhood accidents. The Week offers those working in the early years sector a positive opportunity to engage with children and families and reduce the number of local children suffering serious accidents.

Last year, Child Safety Week activities reached over 450,000 parents, carers, children and young people nationwide. With your help, we can reach even more families with important safety messages.

This year Child Safety Week runs from 6 - 2 June 2016 with the theme of Turn off technology for safety. We know that serious accidents happen when parents are distracted. Technology can be a major distraction for many of us. The theme is a really good way to help children understand about staying safe and when to turn off technology and to start discussions with parents.
