National Blood Week #ImThere 19-25 June

Why give blood

Giving blood saves lives. The blood you give is a lifeline in an emergency and for people who need long-term treatments.

Many people would not be alive today if donors had not generously given their blood.

Why we need you to give blood

We need over 6,000 blood donations every day to treat patients in need across England. Which is why there’s always a need for people to give blood.

The law On Leaving Children Home Alone 

The law doesn’t say an age when you can leave a child on their own, but it’s an offence to leave a child alone if it places them at risk. Use your judgement on how mature your child is before you decide to leave them alone, eg at home or in a car.

Click Here <<< for information from The National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (NSPCC)
  • children under 12 are rarely mature enough to be left alone for a long period of time
  • children under 16 shouldn’t be left alone overnight
  • babies, toddlers and very young children should never be left alone
Parents can be prosecuted if they leave a child unsupervised ‘in a manner likely to cause unnecessary suffering or injury to health
