5 Resources To Help Parents and Carers Prevent Accidents In The Home – Child Safety Week 

Helping families stop serious accidents lies at the heart of Child Safety Week, an annual awareness campaign run by the  Child Accident Prevention Trust (CAPT). As our foster families care for children from 0-18 years, it is important that they know how to prevent any accidents from occurring in the home. 

As a fostering agency, we care deeply about child safety and want to provide our foster carers with as much advice as possible. The theme for this year’s Child Safety Week is Safety In Mind. Accidents are less likely to occur when parents and carers know the risks and know what changes they need to make around the home to keep babies and children safe.

Foster Care, we have a tight-knit community of foster carers and our team here at our independent
fostering agency. We believe in the life-changing power of foster care and work hard as an agency to
support everyone in our community.
