Welcome to Kidsafe NSW

On this website you will find information about current news and events, resources and information sheets to help keep children safe.

Child safety is an important issue and we hope this website will help spread the word to make Australia a safer place for children.

Child Car Seat Recycling Trial Program

Are you curious about what to do with old, damaged or unused child car seats?  Now you can take part in a child car seat recycling trial scheme!  It is estimated that over 200,000 seats are disposed of each year in Australia and over 90% of the seat itself can be recycled.

Remember to dispose of your child’s car seat if it is more than 10 years old or has been in an accident.  By taking it to one of the participating centres listed below, the seat will be taken out of circulation, guaranteeing that someone else won’t be using an unsafe child car seat and that it will be responsibly recycled.

Share the word with friends, family, and your community!  At this time, the trial is scheduled through 30 August 2017.

 Participating centres in NSW :

  •  Kiama Community Recycling Centre: 446 Riverside Dr, Minnamurra
  •  Penrith Community Recycling Centre: Gate 3, 96 Dunheved Circuit, St Marys
  •  Tamworth Community Recycling Centre: 123a Forest Road, Tamworth

Other trial sites are located in Victoria and Queensland.

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.
