The Child Accident Prevention Trust is the UK's leading charity working to reduce the number of children and young people killed, disabled or seriously injured in accidents. We aim to provide independent, expert, practical information on preventing accidents to children and young people. We exist because accidents are a leading cause of childhood death and serious injury. We want to see children leading active, healthy lives - not 'wrapped in cotton wool'. We make a difference by: Spreading knowledge and changing behaviour; supporting staff in local communities; providing a centre of specialist knowledge.
