About Flying Start

Flying Start is a Welsh Government funded programme which is targeted at children aged 0-3 years 11 months and their families who live in certain areas of Cardiff defined by post code.

It is well recognised that children’s early years are an important period and experiences at this time impact greatly on children’s future development – so it is very important to get it right.

Flying Start provide a range of services to support both parents and children.

If you require any further information please contact us.

Each year Cardiff Flying Start holds its annual conference in September. It is a wonderful chance for all the staff involved with the programme to get together to learn and grow from each other. The event is unique to Cardiff, and we take great pride in its organisation, staff are able to come together and not only learn, but really take stock of the work they have done over the last year.

Child Safety Week is the Child Accident Prevention Trust’s (see below) flagship annual community education campaign, raising awareness of serious childhood accidents and how to prevent them, without wrapping children in cotton wool.

Their free resources act as a catalyst for thousands of fun and engaging local activities and events which reach families UK-wide.

And Child Safety Week has a real impact. Last year, awareness of Child Safety Week among parents hit an all-time high of 31%. In 2012, one in eight parents surveyed made their children safer from serious accidents as a direct result of the Week.

Child Accident Prevention Trust

Child Accident Prevention Trust (CAPT) is the UK’s leading charity working to reduce the number of children and young people killed, disabled or seriously injured in accidents.
They exist because accidents are a leading cause of death and serious injury for children and young people – and because many of these accidents can be prevented.

They want children to lead active, healthy lives – not ‘wrapped in cotton wool’. Children need to experiment, play and take risks. But there’s a balance to be struck. No parent wants their child disabled or killed in an accident that can be prevented.

They help people and organisations understand the real risks to children’s safety. And help them gain skills in managing those risks, so families and communities can help keep children and young people safe from serious injury.

National Family Week has firmly established itself as the largest annual celebration of families and positive family values in the UK, inspiring a new generation to champion and cherish family life.

The week creates a wealth of opportunity for families to spend time together and works with brand partners and a network of not-for-profit organisations to provide fun activities and useful resources that actively combat the biggest barriers to positive family life.

National Family Week is backed by all major political parties and over 200 national and thousands of not-for-profit organisations showcasing their work and support of families in their community, throughout the country and around the world.

Since launching in 2009, families have enjoyed competitions, and savings, over 15,000 family friendly events have been held all over the country, and the campaign’s research has raised mass awareness of issues impacting family life in the media.
