How it works

The Children’s Traffic Club (CTC) programme has been hugely successful for over 20 years and on-going, in-depth research proves it works and helps save lives! To date over 2.5 million children around the UK have become members and received the Club materials directly into their home. We are very proud that it remains the most researched and evaluated early years’ road safety education programme in the UK and it works!

Some life habits of children can be set between the age of 3 to 5 years old – so it’s a vital time to introduce them to the Club. The Club works to influence and change attitudes and behaviour of children on and around roads, by engaging them in how to keep safe in a fun way.

It also aims to inspire, involve and motivate young children, but also encourage and engage their parents and carers, through a multi-sensory learning approach.

The objectives of The Children’s Traffic Club are clear:

  • To reduce casualty rates for the targeted age group.
  • To influence long term behaviour of children who become members.
  • To increase parents’ awareness of road safety issues and to give them knowledge of safe practices.
  • To indirectly benefit other members of the family, such as older children and parents themselves.

Anyone can get involved with the Club to help children learn vital road safety skills: parents, educators or even if you would like to work in some way with us.
