So 'Be Seen, Not Hurt'Child Brain Injury Trust logo

Every 30 minutes, a child or young person will acquire a brain injury. This could be the result of an accident.
A brain injury has a devastating and life-long impact on the child and their whole family. Bones can mend and scars can heal but a brain injury stays with you for life and impacts on everything you think, feel and do.· Wear brightly coloured and reflective clothing, even when cycling in daylight
· Attach lights or reflectors to coats, school bags, bikes, scooters and helmets
· Wearing reflective clothing will reflect light from car and bike headlamps making sure you are easily seen
· When walking in areas with very poor or no lighting it is safest to carry a torch – most phone are now equipped with one
