Welcome to Kidsafe NSW

On this website you will find information about current news and events, information sheets, resources and program information 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.

Children need to be given the chance to ‘have a go’, try new things, and explore a range of outdoor areas. This, at times, may involve trips, falls and some tears. However, children need to be able to make their own choices and learn that taking some risks can be an important part of play. As a parent, carer and/or educator, it is important to provide a managed environment so that children can learn about risk and challenge.



The 2014 Kidsafe National Playspace Design Awards (the Awards) recognise excellence and innovation in the provision of safe, creative playspaces. The Awards aim to promote inspirational and innovative best practice play facilities and encourage healthy participation in recreational activities for all children.

Entries have now closed and winners will be announced on Tuesday the 21st of October 2014.
