Gov.UK - The law on leaving your child home alone

The law doesn’t say an age when you can leave a child on their own, but it’s an offence to leave a child alone if it places them at risk. Use your judgement on how mature your child is before you decide to leave them alone, eg at home or in a car.
  • children under 12 are rarely mature enough to be left alone for a long period of time
  • children under 16 shouldn’t be left alone overnight
  • babies, toddlers and very young children should never be left alone

Parents can be prosecuted if they leave a child unsupervised ‘in a manner likely to cause unnecessary suffering or injury to health

Summer care for your DOG

It is important to not only look after yourself over the heat of summer, but you should also take care of your pet's needs. Here are a few things to keep in mind to ensure your pet enjoys summer as much as you do!

Keeping cool and sun protection

Make sure your pet has access to cool, shady areas in your house or backyard. Always make sure your pet has access to lots of cool drinking water. If you’re going out for the day, try dropping a few ice blocks into their water bottle or bowl, so that the water stays colder for longer.

How To Cope In Hot Weather

Most of us welcome hot weather, but when it's too hot for too long there are health risks. If a heatwave hits this summer, make sure the hot weather doesn't harm you or anyone you know.
