Child Safety Week 1st-7th June ”Safety Makes Sense”

Child Safety Week is the flagship annual campaign run by the Child Accident Prevention Trust (CAPT). The campaign aims to bring together individuals and organisations around the country to promote safety messages to families in a fun and engaging way.

What is Child Safety Week?
This year’s campaign takes place between Monday 1st June – Sunday 7th June, with the theme “Safety Makes Sense!”  In response to COVID-19, the emphasis will be on social media to reach as many families as possible.

Why Are We Supporting Child Safety Week?
Although rates of hospital admission in North Yorkshire caused by unintentional injuries in children are relatively stable, they are significantly worse than the England average and our closet statistical neighbours – and the gap is widening.

Injuries are preventable and we can do something about it – supporting Child Safety Week by sharing campaign messages with families and communities across the County is one of the actions we are taking to help address the issue locally.

Why Is Your Support Needed?
Now that the majority of the families you work with will largely be at home for prolonged periods of time, it is vital that they are well equipped with the right messages and tips on how to prevent unintentional injuries for their children.

Below is a link to download a campaign toolkit which we hope you will be able to utilise with your staff / provider networks and promote through your social media channels:
