Seminar will look at “what matters, what works”
A road safety seminar being organised by CAPT will focus on reducing the inequalities in child deaths and injuries on the roads.
The seminar, “What Matters, what works”, is being supported by the DfT and will be held in London on 11 March.
CAPT says that a child from a deprived neighbourhood is up to five times more likely to get killed or injured on the road than a child in a well-off area.
The seminar, part of CAPT’s Making the Link project, will showcase the latest thinking in this important area of injury prevention. It is intended for road safety professionals, public health specialists and practitioners, highways engineers, policy makers and researchers.
Confirmed speakers include: Peter Goldblatt and Heather Ward, University College London; Duncan Vernon, RoSPA; Katrina Phillips, CAPT; Davina Hartley and Simon D’Vali, Bradford MDC; Bill Smith, Children’s Traffic Club; and Halema Uddin, Haringey Council.
New website includes members’ portal and info on training courses etc
