Child Accident Prevention (Jersey)
Child Accident Prevention Jersey, or CAPJ, is a multi-agency group that works trying to keep children safe from serious unintentional injury.
It includes members from a number of organisations including Family Nursing & Home Care; Health and Community Services; Community and Constitutional Affairs; Education; Trading Standards; Headway; The Bosdet Foundation and Jersey Child Care Trust.
CAPJ believes that children need to have fun and to explore but that they also need to learn how to manage their own risk and stay safe.
CAPJ has all sorts of advice on their website about keeping safe, for example,
- Staying safe about the house
- Staying safe with dogs
- Using cycle helmets.
CAPJ also runs many projects and activities in schools including Safety Sam comic talks and Safety in Action Week.
