With support of the State Government, we have partnered with KidSafe Victoria to deliver the Safe Seats Safe Kids program.

This program will host free car seat fittings and safety checks at neighbourhood houses across the state over four years.

At these events, professional fitters will inspect child car seats to make sure they’re installed and being used correctly. Parents and carers will also be provided with information on how to check if their precious cargo is travelling safely.

This $4 million dollar initiative is due to the fact that 70 per cent of car child restraints are not correctly installed, posing a serious risk to the child's safety each time they are on the road.

Kidsafe Victoria data reveals the risk of life-threatening injuries in a car accident can be four to six times greater if a child is seated in a poorly installed restraint. On average, six children under the age of 13 are killed, and around 160 are seriously injured in vehicles on Victorian roads each year.
