Children across Scotland travel Home Safe this October

It’s Walk to School month, and leading homebuilder, Miller Homes, is helping children across Scotland travel to and from school safely by donating high-vis vests to children local to its West and East Scotland developments, as part of its Home Safe initiative.


After a successful two years in Scotland, Miller Homes has expanded its Home Safe campaign across the UK for its third year. Children’s high-vis vests will be available to collect from the sales centre at Miller Homes’ developments. As the morning and afternoon walks to and from school get a little darker, it’s hoped the bright yellow vests will ensure local children are visible to drivers whether they are walking, cycling or scootering to school.


According to the most recent Government reports, the national average for children who walk to school is 46%. This is likely to increase in 2022, as families look to be healthier and more energy efficient.


Peter Thomson, Regional Managing Director for Miller Homes Scotland, said: "We're excited to launch our Home Safe campaign again this year, helping children across Scotland get to and from school safely. As we approach the darker months, we hope the high vis vests will make children stand out against vehicles, making their journey to and from school safer, especially near busy roads.


"We warmly welcome everyone to get involved and pick up a vest from a selection of our marketing suites across the central belt."


Suitable for all primary school children, the high-vis vests will be available on a first-come, first-served basis and can be collected from the sales centres from Thursday to Monday, 10:30-5:30pm.
