Over the past 13 years, child safety centres have been established at several Australian Children's hospitals. In a short time, they have developed an important role in community injury control programmes. These centres provide an efficient conduit for transferring up-to-date injury surveillance and prevention information to families, industry, health and education professionals, and government. The activities of the Child Safety Centre at the Royal Children's Hospital in Melbourne are described, together with ways in which a degree of self-funding can be achieved.
