National Burns Awareness Month - June 2018

The National Burns Awareness Month (1-30 June) aims to drive greater awareness amongst the Australian community of burns prevention and the correct first aid treatment for burns.

National Burns Awareness Month is an initiative of Kidsafe, Australia’s leading community organisation dedicated to child injury prevention, and held in June each year as there is a significantly increased risk of burns during winter.

Almost 80% of serious burns and scalds to young children occur in the home.  Join Kidsafe and Burnaid Gel to take action this National Burns Awareness Month to keep your family safe!

Child Safety Good Practice Guide

Kidsafe NSW, along with Sydney Children’s Hospitals Network and NeuRA, are proud to announce the launch of the Child Safety Good Practice Guide!  Kidsafe was created in response to the increasing number of children being unintentionally injured at home, on roads and at play.  Over the past ten years, these types of injuries have remained consistent. 

In response, NSW child safety and health experts have joined forces to develop this Australian-first resource.  This Guide has given us better understanding of where good progress has been made as well as highlighted areas of investment for the future.
