Liverpool Vic helps children stay safe

Liverpool Victoria has helped to develop an educational website which teaches children about home safety.

The interactive game has been created in partnership with charity Streetwise and approved by the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents.

Streetwise estimates that 4,000 people die as a result of domestic accidents each year. Around 2.8 million people are injured, including one million children.

The game is based on a simulation of a life-sized house in Streetwise&#39s safety education centre in Bournemouth which is sponsored by Liverpool Victoria.

Players compete against the clock to find 29 dangers hidden around the house.

Liverpool Victoria spokesman Kate Coney says: “We have been involved in Streetwise since its beginning in 1996. The success it has achieved is illustrated by the fact that 10,000 children visit the educational indoor safety village every year.

“Liverpool Victoria is happy to be part of this valuable local initiative and hope the game will go some way towards helping to reduce the number of children killed or injured in accidents in the home.”

The game can be accessed at www.streetwise.org.uk.
