We want to keep kids out of hospital. We have a vision for a safer world for Queensland kids, at home, on the road and at play. It is our mission to empower and enable parents and caregivers with practical evidence-based safety advice so they can make informed choices to prevent injuries, disability and death in kids aged 0-18 across Queensland.


,There are many ways a child can be unintentionally or accidentally injured or tragically killed. For more than 40 years we have undertaken research and advocacy initiatives to reduce the incidence of these injuries to fulfill our vision of a safer world for Queensland kids. We believe:

  • Every child deserves a safe, happy, active life
  • A healthy level of risk is important for kids to grow and develop
  • Injury is preventable and prevention is better than cure
  • Parents can make informed choices when they feel empowered
  • Having a strong evidence base is non-negotiable
  • Safety messages can be delivered through collaborations and partnerships
  • Everything we do must drive positive impact

Our national organisation; Kidsafe is the only not-for-profit organisation working across Australia to reduce the incidence of unintentional child and youth deaths and injury. Kidsafe Queensland is the state-based affiliate.

Our constitution, which details our legal ambit, can be found on the ACNC website.

At Kidsafe Qld, we provide resources, information and education to parents, carers and educators on the hazards children face and what can be done to prevent injuries.

We also prepare campaigns to alert the media, authorities and community about new and existing dangers, the latest research and prevention techniques to reduce injuries and death. We also lobby the government for changes to legislation when needed.

We need your help to continue this important work and reduce the number of accidents and unintentional injuries that put children in QLD hospitals.

With your help, Kidsafe Qld can save children’s lives and reduce the pain and suffering from preventable injuries.
