The UNCRC survey on accidental injury – RoSPA Why are we researching accidental injury in young people?Accidents can happen in many places including: in the home, on the road, in the workplace and in and around water. We want to learn from young people about the best way to share prevention information so that we can help avoid children and young people suffering from falls, burns and scalds, poisoning, drowning, and the many other accidental injuries often faced on a daily basis. This survey is being conducted in line with the right for children and young people to be heard under articles 13 and 24 of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC), which acknowledges children and young people’s opinions are valid and should be listened to, and includes the right for parents and carers to have enough information to prevent their children from suffering an injury. The survey will not collect any personal information, and the results will be used to inform:The generic location that young people had an accident, i.e. was it on a road, in or around water, in the home or in a workplaceWhat type of injury was suffered, e.g. broken boneWhat accident prevention measures young people consider may have prevented their accidentWhich organisations are seen by young people to be responsible for educating them about accident preventionThe best methods to disseminate safety information to young people by RoSPA.How do I take part in the survey?The survey is open to all young people across Scotland and takes just a few minutes to complete.
