CAPT issues call for papers ahead of road safety seminar
The Child Accident Prevention Trust (CAPT)* has issued a ‘call for papers’ ahead of its annual road safety seminar which takes place on 23 March.
The seminar, provisionally titled 'Road safety – engaging the parents of children and young people', is being held in Camden, London.
The event is intended for road safety professionals, senior teachers and school governors, public health specialists, highways engineers, policy makers and researchers.
Kevin Lowe, CAPT’s head of consultancy services, said: "We have selected this topic because we are conscious from our contact with a range of road safety professionals that although many road safety activities take place that are designed directly for children, there appear to be gaps in the involvement of parents and carers.
"Some professionals find it hard to engage with them and are frustrated because it can appear that some parents undermine their work, or at least do not reinforce it."
More information will appear on this link in the run up to the event.
CAPT is a national charity committed to reducing the number of children and young people killed, disabled or seriously injured in accidents.
