What is Child Safety Week?
Child Safety Week takes place over one week every year. This year it will be 5-11th June 2017.
Child Safety Week is run by Child Accident Prevention Trust to raise awareness of the risks of child accidents and how they can be prevented. We provide a range of resources to help practitioners run local activities and events and promote safety messages in a fun and engaging way.
The 2017 Child Safety Week Action Pack will be available soon. In the meantime please feel free to download the 2016 version for inspiration.
