Kidsafe WA is the leading independent not-for-profit organisation dedicated to promoting safety and preventing childhood injuries and accidents in Western Australia.
Injuries are the leading cause of death in Australian children aged one to fourteen, accounting for nearly half of all deaths in this age group.
More children die of injury than die of cancer, asthma and infectious diseases combined.
Many of these deaths and injuries can be prevented. Kidsafe WA works in the community to educate and inform parents and children on staying safe at home, at play and on the road.
