Many schools join in with CAPT’s Child Safety Week each year. Here’s just one example of a school that made time to teach students about road safety. 

In June 2010 Nottingham City Council grabbed parents’ attention with a poster campaign calling on them to ‘Make time for safety’. The posters were put up all across the city, and were designed to get parents thinking about the typical hazards in their homes.

In Stockport a multi-agency partnership coordinated activity across the city throughout Child Safety Week.

Parents and carers have so much on their minds, it’s often difficult to have the time to talk about safety. So it’s great for us when we get good feedback about their Child Safety Week experience, and what they’ve found out during the week.

We always get great feedback from the children who have taken part in Child Safety Week. Those who join in with our poster competitions are keen to tell us what they’ve learnt during the week.

The West Midlands has one of the highest rates of unintentional childhood injuries in England. CAPT worked closely with them to develop a networking resource to support the development of child accident prevention partnerships in the region.
