Road Safety Week is 21-27 November

Kingdom Housing Association is supporting the Brake Road Safety Week which runs from 21 – 27 November 2016.

Kingdom’s health and safety officer, Dave Roy, said: “Kingdom’s mission is to provide More Than a Home. Part of that is helping to build safer communities so we’re proud to be involved in this event. Each year thousands of communities and organisations get involved across the UK to spread awareness and help prevent needless tragedies on our roads. We believe that road safety is of paramount importance not only to our employees, tenants and clients but to every road user and pedestrian.”

Dave added: “We are keen to help raise awareness of the importance of responsible driving, with the ultimate goal of reducing accidents wherever possible. Throughout the campaign we will be handing out road safety leaflets at our offices and displaying a road safety banner outside our HQ in Glenrothes.”

Brake is a national, government-funded provider of support to families and individuals devastated by road death and serious injury, including through a helpline and support packs.

Charli Brunning, corporate fundraising officer at Brake, said: “We are proud that Kingdom are supporting this year’s road safety event. Brake is a national road safety charity, founded in 1995, that exists to stop the needless deaths and serious injuries that happen on roads every day, make streets and communities safer for everyone, and care for families bereaved and injured in road crashes. Brake promotes road safety awareness, safe and sustainable road use, and effective road safety policies. We do this through national campaignscommunity educationservices for road safety professionals and employers, and by coordinating the UK’s flagship road safety event every November.”
