Home safety for children under 5

Did you know that:

  • unintentional injuries in and around the home are a leading cause of preventable death for children under five?

  • there are around 450,000 visits to A&E departments each year in England because of preventable accidents at home among under-fives?

New virtual training for staff or volunteers supporting parents or carers of children under 5 in B&NES which covers:

  • the relationship between child development and unintentional injuries

  • the significance of deprivation in relation to unintentional injuries

  • key principles and approaches to preventing childhood unintentional injuries

  • delivering home safety messages to families in engaging and empowering ways

  • sources of home safety information and support

  • how to refer to the B&NES Child Home Safety Equipment Scheme

  • national and local context in terms of childhood unintentional injuries for children aged 0 – 4 years.

Due to added pressures the pandemic is putting on front line staff, we have arranged a wide range of dates and times to accommodate as many people as possible.
