Homelessness Week - Monday 2nd- Sunday 8th of August 2021

Homelessness Week raises awareness of people experiencing homelessness, the issues they face and the action needed to achieve enduring solutions. Children who suffer homelessness are also at greater risk of unintentional injury. Homelessness Week is a national event, with events held across Australia during the first full week in August.

National Burns Awareness Month - June 2021

Every week, 17 children are treated at a specialist burns unit across Australia and New Zealand
Protect your family this National Burns Awareness Month

Kidsafe Australia is urging parents and carers to take action to prevent burns in the home as winter hits and ensure they are aware of the correct first aid measures if a burn does occur.

The call comes during National Burns Awareness Month, an Australia-wide campaign focused on raising awareness of prevention and correct first aid treatment for burns and scalds across all age groups. The campaign is run by Kidsafe Australia in partnership with the Australian and New Zealand Burns Association (ANZBA).
