Child Safety Week aims to prevent accidents in the home

Mon, June 04, 2018

Most accidents involving young children happen at home, but many of these can be prevented.

During Child Safety Week from June 4th to June 10th, Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council wants parents, carers and professionals to know that help is available.

Led by the Child Accident Prevention Trust, the theme of the awareness campaign is ‘Child Safety - together we have got this.’

The Mayor of Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council, Councillor Joan Baird OBE said: “With children most at risk of having an accident at home, particularly those under the age of five, it’s important that parents know who to turn to for help and support. This campaign will help to highlight what help is available and what steps to take in order to make our home environments safer.”

If you have any concerns Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council in partnership with the Public Health Agency can carry out a free confidential Home Safety check.

For more information please contact the Home Safety Team on 028 2766 0257.
