The Child Accident Prevention Trust (CAPT) is the UK’s leading charity working to reduce the number of children and young people killed, disabled or seriously injured in accidents.
We exist because accidents are a leading cause of death and serious injury for children and young people. Many of these accidents can be prevented.
We give free child safety advice to parents and carers, support professionals working with children and families. Our vision is a world where children lead active, healthy lives.
We know time and money can be in short supply. So we incentivise and empower people to make safer choices for children. We focus on what works and what’s practical. And we want every child to have equal life chances. So we tailor support for the poorest families, whose children are at greatest risk.
The Child Accident Prevention Trust website contains a host of useful information, links and advice features.
