Child Safety

The BBSA’s Make it Safe campaign aims to ensure that parents and carers have the correct information to make the right, safe choice in window blinds for their homes.

On this web page you can download the Make it Safe leaflet in English and 12 other languages. This brochure will show you what to look for when considering new blinds and how to make existing blinds safer.

There are now Safe by Design options (blinds containing no operating cords or chains or concealed or tensioned cords) for every style of blind – always consider these options first when considering new blinds.

The videos shown below explain the options available and how to make existing blinds safer.

The BBSA is grateful for support of the Make it Safe campaign by the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) and the Child Accident Prevention Trust (CAPT)
