What is Child Safety Week?

Child Safety Week takes place over one week every year. This year it will be 6-12 June and our theme for 2016 will be "Turn off technology!"

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.

Events are held by a range of different organisations and individuals, including children’s centres, childminders, fire and rescue teams, hospitals, schools and many more.
