Child Safety Week, 1st – 7th June 2020 – Safety Makes Sense
South Tyneside Safeguarding Children Partnership are pleased to inform you that we will be supporting Child Safety Week again this year.
This year Child Safety Week runs from 1st June until 7th June 2020 and looks very different due to the COVID 19 pandemic. None the less the messages of how to keep children safe from accidents remain the same. Our homes are accident hotspots for younger children which is a scary prospect at the best of times and sadly less traffic doesn’t mean we can completely switch off about road safety.
Throughout the week we will be sharing a range of top tips on how to keep children safe from accidents during lockdown (these can be found on our Twitter feed @STSafeguarding), as well as providing links to some excellent resources from the Child Accident Prevention Trust.
We would encourage you to share the links and resources across your own networks and have attached the 2020 family activity pack.
