Keeping children safe…we’re in it together!

A friend shudders recounting the horrible shock of their child coming close to a serious accident; a health visitor shares stories about accidents they’ve seen; the local paper’s front page features parents whose child died in an accident, sharing their story so others don’t suffer. The strongest voices are the ones we relate to and respect. We all have a part to play in keeping children safe.
