Child Safety in Australia
Caring for children is one of the most important occupations anyone can have. Whether you are a parent, carer or teacher, ensuring your children’s safety is a major responsibility. The Wiggles understand this, and use their books, programs, songs and concerts to spread the message and raise awareness of child safety.
In Australia, child safety is still a major issue. Unfortunately there are many preventable accidents occurring each year because parents and carers are not aware of the risks children are exposed to. We all need advice and ideas that will help us change our lifestyles to improve child safety. We can teach one another simple ways that can ensure a safer society for our children and we can learn more about safety precautions that will prevent accidents from happening.
The Wiggles are working with Medibank to spread the message on the importance of childhood safety and have gained the advice of child safety experts from around Australia to provide you with the information you need to help ensure your children’s safety. Together they have developed this easy-to-use website, designed for Australian parents and carers. The site contains handy hints and tips and interactive games and role-plays, so that you and your children can learn together and so make the job of keeping children safe just a little bit easier.
Medibank and The Wiggles hope you will take time to browse the different sources available on this site and improve your understanding of child safety matters. You might like to discuss the issues raised on this site with other parents and carers so that together we all become more aware of the many ways in which child safety in Australia can be improved in the home, on the street, at school, in day-care and in fact wherever children are likely to be.
