NRSW Pledge

The Road Safety Commission encourages groups and organisations to apply for a National Road Safety Week Grant of up $5000 each. The Community Grant Program funding will be used to hold a community National Road Safety Week event to raise awareness and shine a light for safer roads.

National Road Safety Week is an annual initiative created by the Safer Australian Roads and Highways (SARAH) Group and is supported by the State Government of Western Australia, including the Road Safety Commission.

In 2020, Commonwealth, State and local governments, in partnership with road safety organisations, campaigners and businesses, will shine a light on road safety from 3–10 May 2020.
