Q Why is child safety education so important?
A Statistics shows that 1 in 5 Australian children will be sexually assaulted in some way before their 18th birthday. This is a frightening high statistic and victims of sexual assult and violence may suffer physical or mental health problems, eating disorders, substance abuse, suicidal behaviour, aggression, violence or criminal behaviour, it may lead to homelessness, isolation or prevent the victim from develop healthy relationships in the future.

No, we do not release balloons at events and we do not endorse releasing of balloons. For environmental reasons, all balloons with the Daniel Morcombe logo are made from bio degradable latex to minimise impact on our precious environment. Latex baloons will degrade at the same rate as an oak leaf. If you see our baloons getting a white 'cloudy' look it means that the degrading process has started.
