Keep Watch to prevent your child from drowning
Keep Watch aims to prevent drowning deaths of children under five years of age in all aquatic locations. For over 15 years Keep Watch has been educating Australian parents and carers on how to keep their children safe when in, on or around the water.
Drowning is one of the leading causes of death in children 0–4 years of age and in the last ten financial years (2002–03 to 2011–12) 339 children under the age of five drowned in Australia.
