Child Safety Week (4 – 10 June)

 

As part of Child Safety Week, South Tyneside Safeguarding Children Board, in partnership with South Tyneside Council and multi-agency partners, is launching a campaign ‘Safe children – together we have got this’. This includes a series of 30 events running in Children’s Centres across South Tyneside to help promote child safety and accident prevention messages.

 

Accidents and injuries can occur in many areas of day-to-day life, from falls, road safety, pet safety, dangers with cooking and hot drinks, internal burns from batteries, accidental poisoning, and choking from blind cords, small toys or nappy sacks.

 

Accidents and injuries can be prevented.
