Child Safety Week 2020

4th Jun 2020

This week is Child Safety Week 2020. Mid Ulster District Council have asked us to share this information. Please see the attached Facebook link from the Child Accident Prevention  Trust The factsheets, articles and tips for parents will help keep children safe during lockdown, as restrictions start to ease and beyond.

They also pointed out a few tips on Road Safety

As traffic starts to build up again now lockdown is easing here are a few simple rules that families can follow to keep children safe:


  • Show young children you are serious about holding their hand once near a road
  • It's helpful to set a good example before you step off the pavement


  • The simplest way to protect children(and yourself) is to wear a helmet every time, even if it is just a quick cycle around the block or down to the park


  • It is so worth slowing down in built up areas where you see children playing- it only takes a moment to take a life.

In cars

  • Remember to use the right car seat or booster seat for your child's height and weight.
