NBAM WA Campaign Media Event

As part of our National Burns Awareness Month Campaign, the Ellenbrook School of Learning welcomed us to raise awareness on prevention and burn first aid.

Lisa from our research team, together with Sabine Winton MLC, Lorna Harper MLC, Michelle Maynard for Swan Hills, and City of Swan Mayor Tanya Richardson, along with representatives from Kidsafe WA and the Education and Care Regulatory Unit (ECRU), provided insights on the prevalence of burn injuries among children under the age of five and the available resources for parents, families, educators and early learning services that can help prevent scars worn for life.

The Foundation is passionate about providing West Australian children, their families, and the community with opportunities to learn about the causes of burns, prevention, and simple first aid. We believe that early childhood services are a connected community with a widespread reach among children in the at-risk age group for burn injuries.

We would like to see that our Ben and Bella Burnsafe Superheroes education program is available to these services, providing the resources needed to prevent burn injuries and teach children lifelong safety skills. In the meantime, we have subsidised the Ben and Bella storybooks to ensure they remain accessible. The set includes three standalone storybooks and teacher guides, available for purchase via our website for $50.00, including postage.
