In spite of decreases over the last 20 years, injury remains the leading cause of child and adolescent death and disability in England.

Child and adolescent injury prevention work is spread across a variety of Government departments in England. For example the Department for Transport tackles road safety while the Department of Communities and Local Government deal with fire safety. England is represented on the on the European Child Safety Alliance Steering Committee by the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) and the Child Accident Prevention Trust (CAPT).

The current priority areas for child and adolescent injury prevention and safety promotion in England include road safety, home safety and the reduction of inequalities in injury risk.
