Communicating the dangers of carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning to those who work in the homes of vulnerable people.
|Preventative||Our aim is to enable you to know more about CO poisoning and risks so you can help the people you work with to be more CO aware.|
|Practical||We provide activities and resources to make front-line staff and volunteers more aware of the risks of CO poisoning.|
|Accessible||The activities are all free. We cover the UK, and we minimise jargon to make the key Think CO messages understandable.|
|You||If you work or volunteer in the homes of vulnerable people. The Programme is aimed at people with little or no CO knowledge.|

The videos are in Hindi (with English subtitles), English (with English subtitles) and Signed in BSL and subtitled.
The videos, plus clips that can be used in social media, are available by clicking here.
