Councils

We have a range of programs, kits, resources and collaboration opportunities designed to assist your council to engage the local community in learning and discussions about childhood injury prevention. We also have a range of professional development opportunities to help ensure your staff are equipped with up to date, best practice childhood injury prevention information.

Collaborations between Kidsafe Victoria and your council can assist in achieving the outcomes set out in your local council plans and contribute towards ‘Reducing Injury’ which is one of the ten priority areas outlined in the Victorian Public Health and Wellbeing Plan 2019-2023.

To empower local communities with practical strategies and knowledge of how to keep their kids safe, we have developed a local council childhood injury prevention kit.

Our community awareness kits have been designed to provide your council with the tools to raise awareness and reduce the number of children left unattended in car incidents

We have collaborated with The Growth Training Group to offer Nationally Accredited Training Courses in First Aid, ranging from CPR refresher, First Aid and Childcare First Aid.

This two day nationally recognised training course will provide candidates with the knowledge, skills and attitudes to be able to deliver Type 1 Child Restraint Fitting and checking services.

This nationally recognised, accredited unit is suitable for childcare staff, family day care staff or anyone who has to transport children as part of their role.

This 2-hour session is specifically designed for community organisations. The session involves a 45 minute theory component and a 1 hour and 15 minute practical component.

If your local council would like to host a ‘Safe Seats, Safe Kids’ free child car restraint fitting and checking day, please click below

We provide ‘fee-for-service’ childhood injury prevention information sessions that can be delivered both online and face to face.
