On Halloween, some of you may be heading out on the streets to trick or treat.

We’ve put together some tips to help you enjoy trick or treating, while staying safe.

  • Make sure a responsible adult or guardian goes with you – it could be an older brother or sister if they’re over 16
  • Plan your route before you leave the house and make sure someone else knows where you are going
  • Carry a torch and wear reflective or light-coloured clothing so you can be seen
  • Stay close to home and only visit the houses of people you know; certainly don’t stop at any properties that aren’t well-lit
  • Respect other people and their property; be polite and say “thank you.”
  • NEVER enter a stranger’s home
  • Stay on pavements and check carefully before crossing a road – especially if there’s a large group of you
  • Be aware of your surroundings
  • Throw away any treats or sweets that have been opened or unwrapped
  • If you are wearing a mask, make sure that you can see clearly out of it
  • Make sure your costume is warm – it is almost November!
  • Consider having a party at home instead of Trick or Treating
