Q307: My child wants to go out trick or treating, do you have any advice?
Trick or treating is a fun pastime, however it is not completely safe to allow your child out alone at night. A good idea would be to take the children out in a group in the early evening, accompanied by an adult. This ensures that your child can still go trick or treating but also ensures their safety and your peace of mind.
Due to the coronavirus pandemic we would advise against trick or treating this year. Please see the following BBC website in Related Information for further advice.
