Child Safety Week 2022 – safety in mind
The Children’s Burns Trust is once again partnering with the Child Accident Prevention Trust for Child Safety Week 2022. 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. CAPT’s aim is to help families build confidence and skills in managing risks to children’s safety, and for all children to have the freedom to grow and learn, safe from serious harm.
This year’s Child Safety Week runs from Monday 6th June to Sunday 12th June 2022 and the theme is ‘safety in mind’.
The Children’s Burns Trust, whose work is focused on three core areas – prevention being one – understand first-hand how raising awareness of the dangers everyday items can pose to children really does help reduce the number of burns and scalds that occur each year.
This year, as part of Child Safety Week 2022, Children’s Burns Trust and CAPT are joining forces on a dedicated day during the week-long event to focus on raising awareness of the risks that lead to children being burned – specifically those relating to hot drink spills.
Instagram Live Event
On Thursday 9th June, the charity will be enhancing the Child Safety Week programme with an Instagram Live event on the subject of burn prevention and first aid.
