National Child Safety Week – 6th to 12th June 2022

Date: Monday, 06th Jun 2022 | Category: childsafetyweek

To celebrate the start of Child Safety Week 2022, we invited Havering’s Director of Children’s Social Care Services to tell us what child safety means to him….

So what is Child Safety Week all about?

Child Safety Week is an annual community education campaign run by the Child Accident Prevention Trust (CAPT), acting as a catalyst for thousands of safety conversations and activities UK-wide. Helping families stop serious accidents lies at the heart of Child Safety Week. Being clear what the risks are at each stage of their child’s development and knowing what simple changes to make means parents can feel confident to take charge.

This year’s theme for Child Safety Week 2022 is ‘Safety in mind’.  You can find out more by clicking here

CAPT have a range of free resources too –  visit their Child Safety Week Hub

We asked a few our HSCP colleagues to share their child safety tips for Child Safety Week too!
