  • AILA-logo-draft

    AILA – Member & Previously Silver Sponsor

    The Australian Institute of Landscape Architects (AILA) champions quality design for public open spaces, stronger communities and greater environmental stewardship. 

    We provide our members – in urban and rural Australia, and overseas – with training, recognition and a community of practice to share knowledge, ideas and action.

    With our members, we anticipate and develop a leading position on issues of concern in Landscape Architecture. Alongside government and allied professions, we work to improve the design, planning and management of the natural and built environment.

    AILA represents 2000 (and growing) members throughout Australia and overseas. As a not-for-profit professional association, our role is to serve the mutual interests of our members and the wider profession.

    AILA governance is vested in the AILA National Council, which retains ultimate legal responsibility for the whole organisation and provides leadership by setting the strategic direction, budgets, policies and agendas. AILA staff, located in the National Office in Canberra and in state and territory chapters throughout the country, are responsible for advocacy, coordinating the delivery of membership services, and implementation of the AILA Strategic and Operational plan and council and local executive decisions.

  • Kidsafe

    Kidsafe WA – Member

    Kidsafe is the leading Australian, non-government, not-for-profit charitable organisation dedicated to preventing unintentional childhood injuries and reducing the resulting deaths and disabilities associated with childhood “accidents” in children under the age of 15 years.

    Each year about 350 Australian children (aged 0-14 years) are killed and 60,000 hospitalised by unintentional injuries – the kind often referred to as ‘accidents’. Many of these are easily prevented by simple means.

    Injuries are the leading cause of death in Australian children aged one to fourteen, accounting for nearly half of all deaths in this age group. More children die of injury than die of cancer, asthma and infectious diseases combined.

    Unintentional injuries account for about 90% of all injury-related deaths in children and about 98% of all injury-related hospitalisations. Injuries are the leading cause of death in Australian children aged one to fourteen, accounting for nearly half of all deaths in this age group.

    The Child Accident Prevention Foundation of Australia was established in 1979. The Western Australian Division was established in 1980. The trading name Kidsafe was adopted nationally in 1993. Since the establishment of Kidsafe, the number of child deaths and hospitalisations has halved.
