National Secure Your Home Day 23-24 September 2023
National Secure Your Home Day provides an opportunity for all householders to prioritise making your home more secure.
Neighbourhood Watch Australasia (NHWA), in partnership with the University of Queensland (UQ), invite you to dedicate one day of the year to crime prevention awareness and a security assessment of your home.
Held on the last weekend of September – Saturday 23 and Sunday 24 – National Secure Your Home Day supports householders to assess security and target harden homes against crime to provide long-term protection against break-ins, property damage, theft, and poor security.
According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS), in the past year on average 2% of Australian households experienced break-ins, with an estimated additional 2% encountering attempted break-ins.
There was also a correlating increase in motor vehicle theft due to car keys being stolen from inside homes.
All registered participants will receive a FREE National Secure Your Home Day Kit from NHWA on Friday 1st September, including an evidence-based home security checklist, developed in collaboration with UQ, including tips, tools, and advice on cost effective ways to keep your home secure.
Plus a home security activity booklet for kids, and as an added bonus, kids can showcase their creativity and enter the National Secure Your Home Day drawing and colouring competition, with the 6 winning entries each receiving a $50 gift card.
Please share the National Secure Your Home Day information with your friends and family to help them keep their homes safe too – the more people who participate in National Secure Your Home Day, the greater the impact!
