For two years I’ve been campaigning nationally for legislative change in relation to teen parties.
As the recent spate of party-related damage, injury and death clearly shows, we need solutions more than ever.
Litany of loss
On Wednesday, a young man home alone decided to throw this highly destructive party.
On Thursday, a teen was burnt to death after hosting a party at his parents’ home while they were away.
On Friday, kids somehow managed to host an unruly party in a derelict house. It took 70 police to shut down this event. Our taxes at work.
On Saturday, a teen and his mate confronted thugs after a party in WA. The result? A brutal and fatal attack on an innocent young man.
Earlier this year, a male partygoer was killed by an armed gatecrasher waiting for him at the front of the venue.
I believe changing the law is the best long-term way to keep our kids safe at celebrations.
Meanwhile, I’m happy to report that we’re very close to a short-term solution: the release of our Party Survival App.
This app is an easy, step-by-step process to ensure your party runs smoothly.
Safe events involve far more than just assigning security, as this recent piece explains.
