National Burns Awareness Month



The National Burns Awareness Month (1-30 June) aims to drive greater awareness amongst the Australian community of burns prevention and the correct first aid treatment for burns.

National Burns Awareness Month is an initiative of Kidsafe, Australia’s leading community organisation dedicated to child injury prevention, and held in June each year as there is a significantly increased risk of burns during winter.

With the support of Burnaid® gel, it will be hosting a series of national educational and awareness initiatives throughout the month.

Throughout June, Kidsafe invites you to raise awareness of burns prevention and correct first aid by posting on social media or by supporting children’s learning through the use of our educational resources below.

You’ll find everything you need to get started on this webpage.
