About the organisation
About Kidsafe SA:
We are the experts in child safety and injury prevention
We are an independent, not-for-profit organisation
We have been supporting South Australian families since 1982
We exist only to make a safer place for South Australian children at home, at play, and on the road
Our highly skilled and qualified staff provide specialist information and advice to support parents, carers and staff to keep children safe
We are the nationally recognised leaders in child road safety
We are part of a national network of independent Kidsafe organisations in each state and territory and license the Kidsafe brand with Kidsafe Australia
Why we do what we do:
Over 150 children are killed each year in Australia due to unintentional injury and a further 68,000 are hospitalised
Injuries remain the leading cause of death, disability and hospitalisation among babies and children in Australia.
More children die from injury than from cancer, asthma and infectious diseases combined
The number one cause of injury related deaths in children aged 0–14 years is transport accidents
Most of these deaths and serious injuries can be prevented through simple means.
Kidsafe exists to prevent these tragedies.
