What we do

CAPT's work stops children being killed, disabled or seriously injured in accidents - without wrapping them in cotton wool.

Child safety advice to families

  • We give free child safety advice to parents and carers on our website, as well as online quizzes and activities on popular safety topics.
  • We distribute family-friendly resources like picture booklets, leaflets, posters and DVDs. Staff working with families can buy these from our shop, and distribute them to parents and carers in their local communities.
  • We spread key safety messages and help change behaviour through our safety campaigns. We reach millions of children, young people, parents and grandparents UK-wide through Child Safety Week. One in ten parents surveyed made their children safer from serious accidents because of this work.
