Update from Kidsafe Taranaki Trust

Kia’ora from Kidsafe Taranaki Trust

We have continued to support the Taranaki community to reduce injuries to tamariki under 5. In the south of Taranaki, one-to-one falls prevention korero delivered by Ruanui Health has seen over 38 whanau in the last three months.

We continue to support and facilitate Hapu Wananga falls prevention korero to whanau who are hapu (with child).  Hapū wananga within Taranaki has seen us continue to be active and present actively engaging both North and South Taranaki whānau.

Safety Gates continues to be in high demand with a number of Kidsafe Taranaki gates donated to whanau in our community through our providers at Plunket, Tui Ora, Ruanui Health and Te Puna Trust.

Kidsafe car seat clinics held around the Mounga checked over 74 seat restraints in 56 cars and installed 42 seat restraints at clinics in our region.

For more information on these free clinics, click here.

Kidsafe has also received a donation of car seats for whanau in need from DOWNER with support from NPDC.

Our data continues to support and navigate us so that the service delivery and knowledge being shared is reaching, relevant and making a difference for whanau who have children under 5.    Kidsafe Taranaki Trust is committed to the safety of our tamariki and continues to network and engage with our whanau and community.
