The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents' (RoSPA) campaign in Scotland to reduce the risk of toddlers being injured by blind cords is continuing to raise awareness of the issue.

Entitled Make It Safe, the scheme has partnered with local authorities, fire services and childcare and home safety groups in Fife, East Dunbartonshire, the Borders and South Lanarkshire to increase awareness of the hazards associated with blind cords, especially for young children.

Jennifer Henderson, RoSPA Scotland’s home safety officer, said: "The initiative has gone phenomenally well across Scotland - we have worked in partnership with a number of organisations to raise awareness and we’ve handed out thousands of packs to parents and carers."

RoSPA recently advised residents to consider the safety of their home over Christmas, which may lead to them putting up makeshift warning signs.

However, the group believes that safety measures in the home should not be "over the top".ADNFCR-2754-ID-801268929-ADNFCR
