Communities all over the country have nominated playspaces that are inclusive, challenging and innovative. This Play Symposium,  hosted by Dr Geoff Lee MP, Minister for Western Sydney, will culminate in the announcement of the 2018 Kidsafe National Playspace Design Awards.

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.
