The Giant’s House –Child Safety and prevention on tour


Erik Boon, Event Manager – Project manager The Giant’s House/Reuzenhuis. Gezinsbond vzw, Belgium


Accidents can happen in a tight corner, up a staircase with very high steps, with a saucepan, at the bottom of a deep bath… After all, most homes are not made for a child’s size. Step into the shoes of a young toddler and experience as an adult with an exhibition and new technologies the dangers and discover some useful prevention tips. Get to know how Gezinsbond and Ligue des Familles went on tour in Belgium. And why not … bring it to your country. During the webinar you will get to know more about the project and get some tips on child safety.

After a great year 2021 connecting with the COFACE Family Lab community through regular breakfast byte webinars looking at different types of supports to families (a support service, a campaign, a policy, a project, and more) we launched a new breakfast byte series again in 2022.

It again focuses on diverse types of family supports across the EU, including campaigns on inclusive education, cross-border recognition of familial ties, family leadership for an inclusive life, employment supports to adults with disabilities, tips for child safety in the home, training of non-formal education staff for working with children with and without special needs, building energy systems which put families before profits and more.

With these breakfast bytes, we aim to increase critical thinking and understanding of family support systems. The target group of the webinars is especially professionals working with families and children but is open to all (researchers, policy-makers, teachers, health workers, families, and more). It is more important than ever to connect professionals through transnational exchanges in order to tackle the social impacts of COVID-19 on families and children.

Did you miss our breakfast Bytes series or you would like to re-watch it? You can find it on COFACE TV, our Youtube channel.
