Meet our supporters – the companies and industry bodies whose commitment to child safety helps us to prevent serious harm to thousands of children in the UK each year.
We want children to lead active, healthy lives. Children need to experiment, play and take risks. But there’s a balance to be struck. No parent wants their child disabled or killed in an accident that can be prevented.
With just a little bit of a deeper understanding – understanding the ‘why’ as well as the ‘what’ – parents are much better placed to help protect their children from a serious accidental injury.
The Child Accident Prevention Trust (CAPT) and the British and Irish Portable Battery Association (BIPBA) join forces to reduce the risks of children swallowing button batteries.
