We believe that the high rate of serious injury amongst young people aged 15-25 years is unacceptable. Many of these injuries are preventable and we are committed to making a difference to youth injury in NSW.
This year's Youthsafe Forum held at the Sydney Masonic Centre on Thursday 16 May was a fantastic event!
From all of us here at Youthsafe, we would like to thank our keynote speakers and attendees for helping make this forum such a success.
A summary about the day, workshops and information about the forum DVD will be added to our website, so stay tuned.
