About the organisation

Organisation Name : Kidsafe Victoria

Kidsafe, the Child Accident Prevention Foundation of Australia (CAPFA), was established in 1979. We are an independent, non-profit, non-government charitable foundation dedicated to the prevention of unintentional death, 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.

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. To date, a great deal has been achieved in preventing unintentional injuries to children – however, there is still much to be done. Kidsafe and the community must continue their efforts to save the lives of Victorian children.
