Katrina Phillips, Chief Executive of the Child Accident Prevention Trust, has received an OBE for services to child safety.

The honour recognises Katrina’s tireless commitment to the safety of children, particularly those most vulnerable to serious accidents.

Katrina has been unwavering in her dedication to ensuring that no child loses their life or endures the pain and suffering of a serious, but preventable, accident.

Equally she recognises the valuable role that frontline services, professional bodies, government departments, businesses and other charities all play in creating a safer world for children. This drives her commitment to working in partnership and has maximised the impact of the charity’s work.

Katrina said: “It’s amazing to receive this honour during Child Safety Week, when individuals and organisations across the UK are focussing on child accident prevention.

“Too many children still die or suffer disfiguring or disabling injuries in accidents that are completely preventable. This honour is for all of us who go above and beyond to keep children safe from serious harm.”
