Preventing injuries in your community

We’re working with trusted organisations to prevent injuries to children and families in communities around New Zealand.

Community statistics

Information on community injuries for 1 July 2016 to 30 June 2017 will be publicly available later in 2017. If you'd like information on injuries in your community before then, email the data team.

We partner with the Safe Communities Foundation of New Zealand (SCFNZ) to prevent harm and injuries in 26 safe communities around the country.

Supporting children and families

We partner with trusted organisations to keep children safe from injuries.

We’re supporting:

  • Plunket to lead the way in preventing injuries to children under five years old
  • Safekids to deliver the ‘Make Your Home a Safety Zone’ campaign. This helps prevent injuries to children at home
  • St John in Schools who teach children first aid and safety.
