Tools to Address Childhood Trauma, Injury and Children’s Safety
TACTICS is a large scale, multi-year initiative working to make the lives of children in Europe safer by developing tools to increase adoption and implementation of effective interventions at the national and local levels. TACTICS is led by the European Child Safety Alliance(ECSA) in collaboration with a group of academic institutions, NGOs and participation of partners in more than 30 countries including all 27 EU Member States, Croatia, Iceland, Israel, Norway and Switzerland. This initiative builds on the successful work of past EC funded projects such as the Child Safety Action Plan(CSAP, 2004-2010).
