Day for Daniel is a 'National Day of Action' that continues to grow annually. It is where schools, business and community groups across Australia come together to promote child safety and deliver the key safety messages to children and parents.
Day for Daniel is the largest child safety awareness day of its type in Australia. In recent years more than 1 million Australians joined with us to protect children.

The Department of Education, Training and Employment, in partnership with the Daniel Morcombe Foundation, has developed the Daniel Morcombe Child Safety Curriculum for Queensland students and is also endorsed by the Australian Curriculum Assessment and Reporting Authority (ACARA).
The curriculum is now available for full implementation into Queensland and available to all Australian schools. It teaches children about personal safety and awareness across a wide and varied set of circumstances, including cyber safety and phone safety by focusing on the three key safety words: Recognise, React and Report.
As Queensland Child Safety Ambassadors, Bruce and Denise (since September 2011) have delivered school presentations to over 130,000 students across more than 400 Queensland schools. Nationally, they have now visited over 500 schools plus an additional 500 community groups that has seen them directly reach in excess of 250,000 children across Australia.
During 2013 Denise and Bruce Morcombe drove 20,000 kilometres, visiting every State and Territory in Australia promoting the Daniel Morcombe Child Safety Curriculum, with the aim to having it adopted Nationally.
Orbit is an on-line computer game for children aged 7-9 that takes a positive and practical approach to identifying and importantly, highlighting the benefits of reporting child sexual abuse. Launched in 2013 it is available to all schools and families across Australia for FREE and will soon be available as an APP in late 2016.
This (free to download) safety App is not only a great way to help keep kids safe but assist people of all ages. Whether you are 7 to 97, the Help Me App covers you for all kinds of personal emergency situations.
The 'Help Me' button sends an emergency text with GPS location details to two nominated mobile numbers in your trusted safety network and has a number of other unique features including up-to-date safety tip videos and note filing.
Being Safety Smart is a free-to-use online educational game providing safety strategies for children aged from 6 to 8 years old.
The program is designed to increase the awareness of children in situations within the community which might impact upon their personal safety. It helps empower them with the ability and skills to act appropriately and with confidence in potential risky situations.
Our travelling educational resource vehicle 'Big Red' was launched in 2012 to promote child safety. Since then the vehicle has covered tens of thousands of kilometres around Australia visiting a host of schools and community events and delivering the key safety messages.
Engaging children in fun activities while teaching them about personal safety is a powerful combination. Welcome 'Morky' who is the Foundation's mascot and is used at a variety of community and media events throughout the year to promote greater safety awareness.

The Foundation remains committed to assisting young people who are victims of crime by making a positive difference to their lives.
These young survivors of crime are assisted by the Foundation in a number of ways and are mostly identified by case managers and psychologists. The range of assistance includes payment of fees relating to education, sport, music, medical expenses, counselling and costs to ensure safe living environments.
The Foundation has also made numerous financial contributions to ensure 'child friendly' rooms are available for use by counsellors, Department of Child Safety and Courts throughout Australia.
The Daniel Morcombe Foundation remains committed to Child Safety Education and developing Harm Prevention resources that help educate children, teachers, parents, carers and their families to 'Keep Kids Safe'.
In addition, the Foundation now has a strong focus on building Respectful Relationships within our schools and communities through proactive education. Coupled with our core messages of Recognise, React, Report, this will enable children and young adults to act positively and appropriately while staying safe.
The Foundation continues to develop new cutting-edge resources that are required in our ever-changing cyber and physical world. We are committed to fund new projects and initiatives in partnership with Universities, Police, community and educational organisations to ensure an on-going commitment to child safety and respectful relationships. These resources will continue to be made available and accessible to all communities (free of charge) throughout Australia.
