With you on every journey

Our work gives families the information and support they need to ensure their child can travel safely and comfortably on our roads.

This website provides trustworthy information and resources, developed over many years through collaboration and research. The lived experience of families is at the heart of our work, and as you explore our website you will meet some of these families.

We rapidly translate our research into information, resources and training to help health professionals in their important role supporting families with their children's vehicle transport needs. Resources include a national product register, policies, information about road laws and standards, and FAQs for parents and allied health professionals.
