BENH Safe Seats Safe Kids 26 AUGUST 2022 FB 1Safe Seats Safe Kids Program

Correctly fitted child car restraints and booster seats play a crucial part in protecting children from serious injury and death in the event of an accident. Alarmingly, 70 per cent of these are not correctly fitted or used, making injury around seven times more likely.

Parents and carers (including grandparents) can book in for a child car restraint safety check through the Ballarat East Neighbourhood House for our Safe Seats Safe Kids Program events in 2023. Due to popularity of this program in 2023, we have doubled the number of sessions in 2023.

Proposed dates for 2023 are:

  1. Thursday 23 February
  2. Friday 10 March
  3. Thursday 27 April
  4. Friday 12 May
  5. Friday 14 July
  6. Thursday 27 July
  7. Friday 8 September 
  8. Friday 10 November
  9. Thursday 23 November

Please note that these dates will be confirmed in early February 2023. When bookings open, you will be able to book online:

The events will be held in the gravel car park behind Barkly Square, Ballarat East between 10.00 am and 2.00 pm. Entry via Princes Street South. 

Professional fitters will be engaged to perform these checks to ensure child car restraints are installed and are being used correctly, as well as to educate families so they are equipped to check that their child is safe in the car every trip.

Neighbourhood Houses Victoria and Kidsafe Victoria acknowledges the support of the Victorian Government for this important program.
