Kidsafe Victoria launched its ‘The One’ campaign to raise awareness of childhood injuries.
The campaign will feature families whose children have lost their lives due to a preventable injury.
Kidsafe Victoria’s relationship and engagement manager, Alex Hamilton, said people never imagine it will be “the only one”.
“We work with many families who have lost their child to a preventable injury. Their lives are forever changed and the damage is irreparable,” Ms Hamilton said.
“They are good parents who never thought they would be ‘The One’ this happened to. But unfortunately a near miss or the unthinkable can happen in the blink of an eye, which is why Kidsafe continues to work tirelessly to ensure prevention messages reach all families in Victoria.
Kidsafe urges members of the public, including those who live in Wyndham, to support the campaign.
They recommend people download a free home safety checklist and go through it to assess potential dangers to children.
