Kidsafe was first established in 1979 as the Child Accident Prevention Foundation of Australia (CAPFA). State divisions were established soon after. The name Kidsafe was adopted nationally in 1993. In July 2003, the Foundation adopted a federated structure, with each of the state branches becoming independently Incorporated Associations.
Kidsafe Australia’s state branches are now: Kidsafe ACT (Inc) Kidsafe New South Wales (Inc) Kidsafe Northern Territory (Inc) Kidsafe Queensland (Inc) Kidsafe South Australia (Inc) Kidsafe Tasmania (Inc) Kidsafe Victoria (Inc) Kidsafe Western Australia (inc)
Since the establishment of Kidsafe, the number of child deaths and hospitalisations has more than halved. Injuries are the leading cause of death in Australian children aged one to fourteen, accounting for nearly half of all deaths in this age group.

Be You aims to transform Australia’s approach to supporting children’s and young people’s mental health in early learning services and schools. Our vision is that every learning community is positive, inclusive and resilient – a place where every child, young person, educator and family can achieve their best possible mental health.
Be You promotes mental health and wellbeing, from the early years to 18, and offers educators and learning communities evidence-based online professional learning, complemented by a range of tools and resources to turn learning into action. Be You empowers educators, helping them to develop valuable mental health skills and knowledge, while also providing an effective model for implementing a whole-learning community approach to mental health and wellbeing.
Be You is led by Beyond Blue with delivery partners Early Childhood Australia and headspace. Both partners have local teams of trained consultants to provide advice and support to early learning services and schools nationally to help implement a whole-learning community approach growing Australia’s most mentally healthy generation.
