CAPT’s consultancy service can help your organisation to shape its accident prevention work. We can help you to identify local priorities and develop evidence-based strategies and programmes.

The changes to services for children, young people and families and difficult economic conditions has created a state of flux – but there are also opportunities. Effective child accident prevention saves lives and reduces serious long-term acquired disability. The work also cuts costs as serious accidents require expensive treatment and social care services.

Our work with Public Health England

CAPT has worked closely with Public Health England (PHE) and RoSPA to provide guidance for local authorities and their partners on reducing unintentional injuries for children under five years and to children and young people on the roads.

We are also helping to develop PHE’s accident prevention guide for all staff working with children under five, which will be published shortly.

Our consultancy service can help you to implement this advice.

What we do

We help organisations to:

  • review and interpret data to inform priorities for action
  • develop evidence-based strategies, plans and business cases
  • bring stakeholders together to share information and build alliances
  • map key partner agencies and opportunities for mobilising services
  • identify training needs for frontline staff in engaging with parents effectively
  • examine options including implementing NICE public health guidance on home safety assessment and equipment schemes (PH30)

We will mentor your staff as they develop knowledge in this specialist area. Our consultants can also provide short-term project management, adding specialist short-term capacity to your team.

We are also often able to arrange expert witness support on child safety issues for organisations, including trading standards departments, solicitors and manufacturers of children’s products, clothing and safety equipment.

Feedback

“Involvement of CAPT has enabled us to provide some clarity that we are focussing on the right thing and going in the right direction.”

“I think what shined through really well [was his] conviction and enthusiasm … and that’s quite contagious when somebody’s really passionate, it is really, really contagious”
