Every 3 minutes somewhere in the world a child dies as a result of a road related incident. Reported road accidents cost approx. £15bn per year in GB.

For many years now The Children’s Traffic Club, in its original book format, has enjoyed the support of many Strategic Health Authorities and Primary Care Trusts (PCTs) in the UK. In addition, Health Visitors have been actively involved with The Children’s Traffic Club, utilises Club material as the basis for child development tests, using specially developed materials.

The Children’s Traffic Club programme has been hugely successful for over 20 years. It remains the most researched and evaluated early years’ road safety education programme in the UK.

In several areas of the UK, funding for the club comes from local government, entitling all 3-4 year olds in the area to free membership.  In these areas it is often the partnership with the Health Authorities who make it possible by mailing out to all parents and carers with 3 year old children, in their area. The labelling and mailing of the invitations is carried out by the PCTs, using ‘invitation’ packs supplied by The Children’s Traffic Club. This method safeguards the privacy of children and families as nobody, outside the Health Authority, gets access to their details.

With such well respected resources, now extensively re-developed into a new digital format, never has teaching pre-schoolers vital road safety messages been simpler or more ‘fun’ and ‘interactive’!

We welcome the support of health professionals in bringing life saving messages to parents and their young children. To find out more about the Club, just click here
