Button batteries

Button batteries, in particular big, powerful lithium coin cell batteries, can badly hurt or kill a small child if they swallow one and it gets stuck in their food pipe. Click the resources below to download and share or visit our button battery advice hub to learn more.

Choking

Choking usually tops parents’ fears when it comes to accidents. And rightly so. But knowing some simple steps puts you in the driving seat and lessens the worry.

Dog safety

The bond between your child and dog can bring fun and happiness to family life. But any dog can bite if they feel they have no other option so it's important to know what you can do to prevent it from happening.

Drowning

It’s scary to think about but drowning doesn’t happen like it does in the movies. A drowning child doesn’t splash about or cry for help. They slip quietly under the water, often unnoticed. But, once you understand how and where drowning happens, there are things you can do to prevent it.

Falls

While most falls aren’t serious – active children often fall over – some falls can lead to death or long-term disability. So it’s important to learn what you can do to prevent serious falls.

Fire kills. But many of these tragedies could have been prevented. Learn what you can do to keep children safe.
