Kidsafe SA Incorporated

Child injury prevention education and awareness

Kidsafe SA is the leading independent not-for-profit organisation dedicated to promoting safety and preventing unintentional deaths and serious injuries to South Australian children. In Australia, over 250 children die each year from preventable injuries, while a further 58,000 are hospitalised. This means more children die from injury than from cancer, asthma and infectious diseases combined. Kidsafe exists to prevent these tragedies.
