Holding hands to prevent accidents at home

One child per week in Australia is injured in a low speed accident, and it’s almost always by a relative or friend at home. The Hold My Hand Initiative by Soroptimist International Bayside Inc., with help from a Queensland Government community road safety grant, will equip families with books and stickers aiming to educate parents and caregivers with children under five years of age.

The book will highlight the dangers and risks to children when they are travelling in and about cars, car parks, crossing roads and driveways. Books will be distributed within the 4300 postcode area and selected childcare centres in Queensland.

What are your thoughts when it comes to children and road safety? Share your ideas via applying for a Queensland Government community road safety grant, and your project could be the next one funded. Apply for a StreetSmarts community road safety grant.
