Urgent safety alert
Urgent safety alert issued for baby self-feeding pillows
Self-feeding pillows are on sale all over the internet. But they can kill small babies. The baby can’t push the bottle away, so can choke on the milk or suffer aspiration pneumonia.
The Child Action Prevention Trust urges anyone who works with families to tell parents to stop using these products straight away.
Dangers of buying cheap toys online
Help us warn families about the dangers of buying cheap toys online
Many parents and carers assume that if they can buy a toy for their child then it must be safe. But sadly, there is an increasing number of unsafe toys being sold online which can be deadly.
And, with many families feeling the pinch this Christmas, the appeal of cheap toys could have fatal consequences.
That’s why the Childs Action and Prevention trust have launched a campaign to raise awareness of the high-risk toys to avoid on online marketplaces.
Keep children safe from button batteries this Christmas
Help us keep children safe from button batteries this Christmas
This Christmas, homes will be filled with light-up decorations, festive tea lights, singing Santas and flashing Christmas wands. But these – and many cheap toys – are powered by button batteries that can badly hurt or kill a child if swallowed.
The Child Accident Prevention Trust provides free printed resources to help spread the word about the risks and what to do in an emergency.
Road Safety Week
Why is Road Safety Week so important?
The theme of Road Safety Week 2022 is SAFE ROADS FOR ALL, bringing people together to raise awareness that every life on our roads matters, and every death and injury is preventable.
Road Safety Week will draw attention to key areas of road safety the government supports, including safe roads, safe vehicles and speeds, the new hierarchy of road users, and the importance of inclusivity to keep us all safe on the roads, no matter who we are or how we travel.
