Government Media Release >> 

On average, one young person in Australia dies each week from alcohol related causes and many others are harmed or potentially at risk of harm and as a result may never reach their full potential or live their dreams.

This website is dedicated to the prevention of alcohol related harm in young people and aims to provide insight, education and a medium for engaging and connecting parents, community and government to target our current epidemic of underage drinking.

  • What is happening with our teen drinking culture today?
  • What has happened to parenting?

Did You Know?

  • Keep em Safe has been campaigning for National reform of liquor laws for minors?
  •  The Victorian Coalition government has introduced new laws that will protect minors from unauthorised supply of alcohol at parties and gatherings held in private residences?
  • Research has shown that early introduction of alcohol to young people can alter the development of the adolescent brain and affect areas such as: reasoning, problem solving and emotions. This may result in an increased risk of problems with alcohol in later life as well as mental health problems.
  • The recent Australian Alcohol Guidelines advises that for children and young people under 18 years of age, not drinking is the safest option. This is based on scientific evidence surrounding the development of the brain and also the high risk of accidents, injuries, violence and self harm in the 15- 17 age group.
