Child Safety Week 2017 takes place 5-11 June, with the theme ‘sharing is caring’.

Run by the Child Accident Prevention Trust (CAPT), Child Safety Week raises awareness of the risks of child accidents and how they can be prevented.

To help support this year’s campaign, friends, families, communities and professionals are encouraged to show they care by sharing their experience and knowledge – not just about the horrors of accidents, but also the really practical, simple things they do to prevent them.

Covering all kinds of child accidents, CAPT has prevention tips including: Almost 1 in 6 children suffer an accident or near miss, like stepping out onto the road without looking, whilst on their own mobile phones. Set a good example to your children by never using your phone while crossing the road.
