This week we continue to support Child Safety Week run by Child Accident Prevention Trust to raise awareness of the risks of child accidents and how they can be prevented. Accidents involving children can easily happen inside or outside of the home. There are risks in everything we do but most parents and guardians hope to find the right balance in order to allow children to grow and explore their surroundings. Many accidents are preventable but unfortunately still happen as a result of the negligence of others.

Child Action Prevention Trust are raising awareness of injuries being suffered by children and offer guidance on working together as a community to prevent injury to children, who are of course very vulnerable in society. Children are often unable to recognise dangerous situations in the same way adults are. For example, whilst children are playing it is often the case unfortunately that they step into the road in front of a passing vehicle, or can suffer injuries whilst playing on various apparatus within a play area. In addition, it is becoming easier for children to be targeted by potential abusers. The normality of social media means that children are interacting with strangers on a daily basis who could be posing as children to gain their trust with the intention of abusing the child.

If you, a family member or friend are affected by a brain injury this will inevitably have a huge impact on your life and the people around you. Rehabilitation is key from the outset and is likely to be an ongoing aspect in any survivors life. Not only does this assist and support the individual who has suffered the brain injury but it also helps those around them to be involved with their continuing care after brain injury. It allows those supporting the injured to seek respite when carers, physiotherapists, and other therapists are working with their loved one and helps them to cope with any remaining disabilities.
