This week the Daily Mirror launched a child safety campaign to highlight the problem of unsecured window blinds cords and Apollo Blinds is right behind it.

It’s an issue we have been banging the drum about over the last couple of years and it’s long overdue that a national newspaper has started such a campaign.

The red top tabloid is giving away 60,000 Make It Safe packs which contain leaflets and free safety devices.

Free safety devices (as demonstrated by Alan from Apollo Blinds Borders) are also available through the Apollo Blinds network and our teams across the UK can also provide expert advice on child safety issues and how to help people make their homes safe.

We spoke to the Daily Mirror and praised them for their stance and asked them to continue driving the message home about safety to their readers. We pointed out that all Apollo products come with safety devices as standard but there remain lots of homes where the cords from window blinds still hang freely and this is a potential hazard – particularly for toddlers and young children.
