Kidsafe WA and the Constable Care Child Safety Foundation (CCCSF) have announced an exciting new joint venture project: the WA Child Safety Awards. Building on the success of the prestigious Constable Care Child Safety Awards, which have taken place each year since 2012, Kidsafe WA will now be partnering with CCCSF to host these awards.
The first WA Child Safety Awards will take place in August 2017. Past awards have attracted much media attention, with coverage by Channel 7, the West Australian and Mix 94.5 among others. The 2015 awards attracted over 400 attendees, including high-profile Western Australians such as Her Excellency the Governor Kerry Sanderson, the WA Chief Justice Wayne Martin, three State Government Ministers and Shadow Ministers, three Commissioners, several members of Parliament and many senior figures from the corporate world.
David Gribble, CEO of CCCSF, states that "Kidsafe WA and Constable Care have both played very important roles in keeping the children of WA safe for many years, and we are looking forward to sharing our knowledge and collaborating on many more projects in the future. The Safety Awards have helped to dramatically raise the profile of child safety, and importantly put harm prevention strategies firmly on top of the community agenda. We are excited to partner with Kidsafe WA to work towards our shared mission of protecting, educating and empowering our most valuable asset, the children of WA."
