Kidsafe is targeting a reduction in the 250 deaths and 58,000 hospital admissions from preventable injuries via social media channels in the lead up to National Kidsafe Day on the 23rd of October.

Melanie Courtney, National Kidsafe Day coordinator said, “Although more children die each year from injuries than infectious diseases, cancer and asthma combined, it’s not a topic that is widely discussed in the community.”

Kidsafe is commencing a social media campaign to start a national conversation around child injury prevention in the lead up to National Kidsafe Day on Tuesday October 23rd.

Kidsafe is launching the ‘Blog to “Make a Safer world For Kids” Campaign’ to encourage bloggers to add a child safety post to their existing blogs.

They also want individuals, parent groups, schools, businesses, MP’s and community groups to start their own child safety blog to spread the message and start the conversation.

Anyone wanting to start a blog can go online to check out the competition, and download parts of the kit such as the ‘Top twelve common injuries’ fact sheet and links to resources.
The intention is to increase awareness of the issues, especially of the dangers in and around their home.

Ms Courtney said that the Kidsafe Blog to ‘Make a Safer World for Kids; campaign has been launched with a powerful blog from Josie, who opened up on the story of how she lost her young son fourteen years ago.

Justin drowned tragically in a neighbor’s pool after the pool gate had been propped open- a thoughtless action which led to a very preventable death that has haunted Josie and her family and friends every day since 

Bloggers should log on to the website –  to find out how they can participate now and download your chance to ‘Make a Safer World for Kids’.

Motherpedia will be supporting Kidsafe Day by featuring injury prevention tips and stories.
