Welcome to Kidsafe NT
Welcome to Kidsafe Northern Territory, - creating a safer world for Territory kids for more than 10 years! We operate a renowned child car restraint hire, fit, check and sales service and we are the lead non-government, not-for-profit, charitable organisation dedicated to the prevention of unintentional childhood injuries.
For the past decade, Kidsafe NT has worked closely with Government agencies, parenting support groups, child protection, health and early childhood agencies, refugee centres, local Councils and the corporate sector to spread the injury prevention message across five focus areas: households (including burns and scalds), roads, schools, playgrounds and water.
Our organisation is focussed on preventing child deaths from unintentional injury and to reduce the severity of injuries through education, research, advocacy and the promotion of environmental, legislative and behavioural change.
On this website you will find information, fact sheets, resources and program information to help you create a safer world for children.

Child car restraint laws were introduced in the Territory in February 2013 and now every child up to the age of 7 years must be restrained in an age appropriate child car seat. If you have any questions relating to the child restraint laws in the NT or wish to book a child car restraint fitting, hire or purchase for your child please contact us on (08) 8941 8234. There is also information, fact sheets and brochures on NT child car restraint legislation on: Department of Transport website .

Southern States have suffered under heatwave conditions this Summer but Territorrians should always be mindful of the dangers posed to children if left alone in hot cars. On a typically hot Territory day, the temperature inside a parked vehicle can be up to 30° higher than the outside temperature – in excess of 60°. Safety Steps:
- Never ever leave kids (or pets) alone in a hot car, however briefly.
- Always check the front and back seats of the car before you lock it and leave.
- See a child alone in a hot car? Call 000 immediately. Get them out ASAP if they are in distress.
- Always lock the car when it’s empty so kids can’t get in without you knowing.
