    When you are looking after children, you can’t keep them away from children entirely. In fact, if they need to stay safe, they should learn to swim so they do need to be in the water for that! Even very young babies can learn to swim and to keep themselves safe.

    Keep your children safe from drowning

    There is water all around, at home in the bath or with the hosepipe, paddling pool, pond or water feature, in parks in the form of lakes, ponds and fountains, in city centre squares in the form of water features and fountains, and of course at the seaside.

    The most important thing to emphasise is to watch children at all times when they are in the water. Don’t read books or chat on your phone while they are in the bath, or do anything that distracts you. Play with the child instead. Do not drink or take drugs when you are in charge of them.

    Keep an eye on the children

    When you take them to a park, don’t let them run off too far. If you like to feed the ducks, don’t let them reach out towards them. Make sure they learn not to go too close to the water’s edge.

    It’s important that you know how to swim yourself, and also how to resuscitate other people, including children. You should learn how to safely carry another person through the water.

    If you have a pond or water feature in the garden, fence it off so that children do not accidentally fall in. If you have a swimming pool, make sure that it is gated too.

    If you take children out on a boat, even a small inflatable, make sure that they are wearing life jackets.

    You can call us for advice

    If your child has had an accident that was out of your control, call our Aberdeen City no-win, no-fee team. It may be that your child was left in the care of a nursery and had an accident with water, or perhaps the council allowed a public park to be unsafe.

    Either way, our Aberdeen City no-win, no-fee team will be able to help and advise you.

    Accident Advice Helpline can take your claim for compensation in most cases completely over the phone.

    Claiming compensation is easy

    A sick child needs a lot of attention, and this will mean time off work for you, and extra costs such as travel and childcare for your other children. These costs add up and that’s why our Aberdeen City no-win, no-fee team is here to help you.

    You can get ring them at any time of the day or night on 0800 689 0500 and from your mobile 0333 500 0993.
