Today marks the start of Child Accident Prevention Trust’s Child Safety Week 2019 (3-9 June), and iHV is delighted to be a partner!

The focus for the week is Family life today: where’s the risk? It highlights the new dangers facing families today from our modern lifestyles and offers simple solutions to keep children safe.

We are delighted to share updated iHV resources during the week for health visitors and also updated Parent Tips for families – so please keep an eye on our website each day this week for all the newly updated resources.

Follow hashtags #ChildSafetyWeek and #familylifetoday on social media and share your activities by tagging them too!

Today’s updated resources:

  • Updated Parent Tips – How to reduce unintentional injuries in children under 5 years (accident prevention)
    • These updated Parent Tips give parents and carers ways as to how injuries around the home can be prevented. It’s a good idea to take the time to ‘crawl’ around your home and get an idea of where the dangers to your child might lie.
  • Updated GPP – How to reduce unintentional injuries in children under five years
    • These updated Good Practice Points set out what health visitors need to know about how injuries can be prevented, often through simple changes to daily routines. They outline some key points in effective engagement with parents and guidance to reduce injuries along with up-to-date evidence and references.

Please note that GPPs are available to iHV members only.

If you’re not a member, please join us to get access to all of our resources.

The iHV is a self-funding charity – we can only be successful in our mission to strengthen health visiting practice if the health visiting profession and its supporters join us on our journey. We rely on our membership to develop new resources for our members.

So do join us now!
