Empowering and educating children to prevent and recover from injury
Every day the team at the KIDS Foundation devotes time and resources to empowering and educating children and their families on ways to prevent injuries and trauma associated with events that put children in dangerous situations. That is how KIDS gets its acronym - ‘Kids In Dangerous Situations’.
The KIDS Foundation has been operating since 1993, with a number of highly successful programs making a significant positive impact on the lives of many children and their families.
KIDS occupies a unique position as a national leader in childhood injury prevention and injury recovery and is one of the few organisations of its kind committed to creating and instilling a culture of safety among young people with its integrated approach to safety education and rehabilitation.
The KIDS Foundation supports children who have experienced horrific injuries and trauma caused by burns, accidents, dog attacks, crime, neglect, abuse and environmental events, and educates and empowers children to prevent them, reaching 400,000 children each year.
