Let Esther Rantzen help you with your injury claim in Oxted
Esther Rantzen is the patron of the Accident Advice Helpline and has been since 2003. For many decades, Esther has worked tirelessly as a campaigner for the rights of the consumer. She is well known and highly respected within the media world, as an accomplished journalist and presenter throughout her career with the BBC in both radio and television.
Esther presented the long running popular television programme That’s Life! for over 20 years. This programme didn’t just highlight rogue traders, but centred around the topic of consumer rights leading to many successful health and safety campaigns. These resulted in nationwide changes for consumers and even led to new health and safety laws being passed. For example, Esther campaigned for child safety in play areas and this led to the nationwide removal of dangerous concrete and tarmac in children’s play areas and the installation of softer materials to absorb impacts. Esther also led a campaign for car safety, by enforcing the use of seat belts for children in the rear of cars, to reduce the number of children who suffer serious injuries and fatalities on the roads. The programme also had a light hearted element as every week they presented the Jobsworth Award. This was given to an employee who they discovered had acted in a ridiculous manner towards someone by following rules, which in the circumstances were illogical.
More recently, Esther has been associated with highlighting the devastating effects of child abuse and neglect by raising the public’s awareness of children who suffer abuse and need dedicated telephone support. This led to the concept of Childline in 1986 which was the first national helpline for children who may be distressed or in danger, the first in the world that has now been copied in over 150 other countries. This free phone helpline was set up and it was immediately overwhelmed with thousands of calls each day from abused children. Childline has since merged with the NSPCC in order to tackle the growing number of calls and expand the service that they provide.
