Injury Matters works to prevent and reduce the impact of injury and support those affected.

We work across a range of current and emerging injury priority areas affecting the community. This has included falls, trauma recovery, road safety, substance-related harm, and safety promotion. 

In 2022-23, we delivered 128 community education sessions, events and displays to over 4,685 attendees. This community education, aims to prevent injuries, support recovery and create safer people and places. 

Events

Every year 1 in 4 Western Australians report an injury requiring treatment by a health professional.

In 2022-23, we provided 639 free counselling sessions to those affected by road crashes. 

About Counselling

WA’s injury events cost $9.6 billion in 2012 due to health care needs, loss of productivity and quality of life lost.

We work with real data to create safer people and places.
