Words You May Need to Know

 

Multi-agency – several groups working together

Prevention – to try and stop something happening

Unintentional – when something is not planned or expected

Risk – the possibility of something bad happening

 

Child Accident Prevention Jersey, or CAPJ, is a multi-agency group which works very hard in Jersey trying to keep children safe from serious unintentional injury.

 

The Group was started in 1996 and members come from a number of organisations including Family Nursing & Home Care; Health and Community Services; Community and Constitutional Affairs; Education; Trading Standards; Headway; The Bosdet Foundation and Jersey Child Care Trust.

 

CAPJ  believes that children need to have fun and to explore but that they also need to learn  how to manage their own risk and stay safe.

 

CAPJ has all sorts of advice on their website about keeping safe eg:

 

-          Staying safe about the house

-          Staying safe with dogs

-          Using cycle helmets.

 

CAPJ also runs many projects and activities in schools including Safety Sam comic talks and ‘Safety in Action Week’.

You can also pick up a CAPJ plastic business card with useful phone numbers on the back! It's free from Family Nursing & Home Care, Pathways or the Emergency Department at the Hospital.  Kindly sponsored by Jersey Electricity.
