Mission
Kidsafe is an independent, non-profit, charitable foundation dedicated to the prevention of unintentional death, serious injury and associated disability to children.

Reach
Kidsafe operates at national, state and regional levels in cooperation with a variety of stakeholders including government, industry, schools, hospitals, the media, community groups, voluntary organisations and individuals.

Partnerships
Open to working with other organisations to maximise its impact.

Key campaigns
– Community Outreach Program

Impact
Since Kidsafe’s establishment, the number of children in Australia killed by unintentional injury has been halved. This has been achieved through collaboration with others to provide injury prevention programs, media campaigns and educational resources. These have led to increased awareness of child safety issues and injury prevention throughout the community.
