Help support our summer campaign


We're re-launching our "Play safe over the summer" campaign over the summer holidays to warn Leeds children of the dangers, not only of entering abandoned buildings, but also playing on railways lines and swimming in open water.


Parents/ carers and grandparents are being asked to talk to their children/ grandchildren about the potential dangers in their local area eg; open water, abandoned and derelict buildings and railway lines.

The key messages are:

  • Abandoned buildings may be fun to explore but can cause serious harm
  • Water may look safe but can contain hidden dangers
  • Only appropriate crossings such as bridges or level crossings should be used to cross railway lines.
  • Talking to your child about these dangers can help them stay safe when they are out on their own this summer.

The campaign will run until 3rd Sept 2018.

Campaign objectives:

  • To prevent young people from playing in dangers situations eg: abandoned buildings, on railway lines or from swimming in open water
  • To ask parents and grandparents to be aware of the dangers in their local areas and to discuss playing safely with the children in their care.

If you're delivering services to children, young people and families over the summer, help us to get our message out across Leeds.
