ELFS Project Overview
Accidental injury is the leading cause of death among children
and young people and puts more children in hospital than any other
ELFS was developed locally in 2002. It's overall objective
is to reduce the number of children that are killed or seriously
injured as a result of accidental injury. It aims to do this
by raising awareness of the most prevalent causes of accidental
injury in 3 to 5 year olds.
ELFS is funded by Public Health Manchester. As a result
delivery is currently restricted to 3 to 5 year olds in MCC
children's centres and schools.*
*Organisations in Bradford, Nottingham, and Oxford deliver some
aspects of ELFS. Please contact Manchester ELFS if you
require contact details in any of these areas.
