1979, as part of the Child Accident Prevention Foundation of Australia (CAPFA)
Kidsafe is an independent, non-profit, charitable foundation dedicated to the prevention of unintentional death, serious injury and associated disability to children.
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.
Open to working with other organisations to maximise its impact.
– Community Outreach Program
– Do Not Leave Children in Cars Campaign
– Closing the Gate on Backyard Pool Drowning Campaign
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.
