National Burn Awareness Day 2019 – 16th October

A burn injury is for life – the scars are physical as well as psychological and can present life-long challenges for the individual and their families.

Children and the elderly are the most vulnerable and the majority of injuries occur as a result of an accident that could so easily have been prevented.

On this year’s National Burn Awareness Day we are supporting the Safe Tea Campaign which aims to prevent serious burns (scalds) from mugs of hot tea or coffee and to ensure that parents/carers know how to give burns first aid.

Children’s Burns Trust works alongside the British Burn Association to raise awareness and grow the momentum of National Burn Awareness Day each year.
