Injury Prevention Awareness Campaign Briefing

Injury Prevention Awareness Campaign Briefing

Following the coordination and execution of Community Safety Month in October 2014, the Injury Control Council of WA (ICCWA) took the opportunity to reflect on how ICCWA’s involvement in Community Safety Month could be transformed or modified to add greater value to the injury prevention sector.

As a result of this review and adopting key recommendations ICCWA has decided it will no longer coordinate Community Safety Month in its previous format but instead will focus more specifically on key topic areas under the injury prevention umbrella.

ICCWA’s new approach will instead focus on enhancing pre-existing individual injury topic campaigns, such as suicide prevention and road safety, with a focus on engaging Local Government participation in such campaigns.
