Kidsafe Tasmania is dedicated to the safety of Tasmanian children. Our goals are to contribute towards child safety through the prevention of unintentional childhood injuries and reducing the severity of unintentional injuries to children under the age of 14 years.
We are part of a network of Kidsafe organisations throughout Australia - an amazing resource of great ideas, experience and shared knowledge that has contributed towards many of the resources available to you through this website and our Kidsafe Tasmania office.
Our aim of a safer world for kids is achieved through community education, research, advocacy and environmental and legislative change.
We are always available to assist.

Some child safety facts - why Kidsafe is working hard for children
More Australian children aged 1 - 14 years die as a result of injury than from cancer, asthma and infectious diseases combined. In 2005, 35% of all deaths in this age group were due to injury.
Every day, 5000 children require medical attention and around 180 children are admitted to hospitals in Australia as a result of injury. Some of these children will suffer permanent scarring or disability as a result of their injury. Tragically, around four children per week will die as a result of injury.
Since Kidsafe's establishment in 1979 the number of Australian children killed by unintentional injury has been halved.
