European Child Safety Alliance  print friendly

The European Child Safety Alliance originally a EuroSafe programme, but now part of RoSPA, started in 2000.

Safety experts from across Europe come from diverse fields and settings, including medicine, public health, psychology, education, engineering and government, to share and advocate for what works in child injury prevention to benefit children and their families. Direction for the programme is provided by a Steering Group (committee), composed of representatives of the 30 Member States of the European Union (observers also participate from EU applicant countries) and affiliated child injury prevention organisations.

The European Child Safety Alliance’s primary audiences are European and national decision makers, leaders, and practitioners who can influence healthy public policy, standards, and product/environment designs to reduce deaths and injuries of children 0 to 17 years of age.

In partnership with the national child safety agencies in each Member State, promotion of information on good practices will also be communicated to parents, caregivers, decision makers, and national media to increase awareness and knowledge of current childhood injury issues.

Funding for the Alliance is provided in partnership with the European Commission, the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents, Johnson and Johnson - Europe, Middle East and Africa and Intertek.

The European Child Safety Alliance is hosted and currently operated out of the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents in Birmingham, England since January 2011. Prior to that it was hosted by the Consumer Safety Institute in the Netherlands.
