I attended the bStreetsmart event today along with my school, MET Oatlands.

I just wanted to say thank you for the awesome job you did. The day was excellent. Crash scene was very realistic and survivors stories very stirring.

Thanks for organising this great event! It was a job very well done.

 



WOW! WOW! WOW!

 

Thank you for having us attend the BSTREET SMART program today. I can't put into words how powerful all the demonstrations and speakers were.

This is so well put together and I am so pleased 100 of our students were able to attend.

 

Thank you so much!

 

Excellent! and so important.

 



Thank you for organising such a wonderful and powerful event.



Sponsors and Donations

The bstreetsmart 'Youth and Road Trauma Forum' was the first of its kind in Australia, comprehensive in its format and content and unique as a community education and injury prevention initiative developed and  run by a Trauma Centre as opposed to a Government Agency or Private Organisation. It was initially run as a pilot program at Westmead Hospital with a total of 400 high school students in the local area. Following its enormous success and overwhelming response and demand from the community, it was finally launched as a State Wide Forum and run at the Allphones Arena, on the site of our Olympic Park It is now in its eleventh year and last year reached nearly 19,000 high school students from across NSW and the ACT.

This project has immense potential to prevent injury, loss of life and save money not only for the health dollar but also for the family and community,as trauma is a disease that affects more than the patient.

The core cost for running the three day forum is currently funded by the NSW Government. Obviously, as part of a public health service, funding is sometimes scarce and the Trauma Service could benefit with the help of corporate and public donations as we continue to grow the event. All gifts/donations, no matter how small, are important in sustaining the vision of  bstreetsmart into research, education and injury prevention.
