|‘Who’s in Charge?’ campaign launched aims to reduce child harm danger
On the 16th November 2020 the Birmingham Safeguarding Children Partnership, in collaboration with Birmingham Community Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust launched a new video campaign in response to increasing concerns that growing number of babies and children are at risk of serious harm because of the way some parents and carers consume alcohol at home. The campaign which was launched in Alcohol Awareness Week – asks adults consuming alcohol at home while responsible for children a simple, but potentially life-saving, question – ‘when you drink, who’s in charge?’. To support the campaign short films have been produced to raise awareness of the issue and reduce the number of children suffering harm. For further information on the campaign click here.
