SOCK Week

Campaign Overview

SOCK stands for ‘Save Our Country Kids’ and is a road safety initiative created by the Narembeen CRC.

SOCK week is a week long campaign of education on road safety and the impact poor decision making can have within a small community. SOCK Week is held annually in the last week of June and facilitates a number of activities and events that are designed to be informative as well as engaging. Activities held during the week- long event promote several road safety messages such as drink driving, speeding, distractions and fatigue and is aimed at a broad cross-section of the community.

The initiative aims to raise awareness, inform and educate road users as well as promote safe, legal and responsible road use.

It is a significant event for our community which has a strong social media presence with a huge focus on remembering those that we have lost in road accidents in our community.

SOCK week has the potential to make strong and positive contributions for improvements in all four cornerstone areas of safe speed, safe roads, safe road users and safe vehicles and possibly reduce the risk of crashes. 

The Shire of Narembeen and the Narembeen CRC would welcome other communities touched by road accidents in their communities to come on board and implement SOCK Week in their communities.

If your community would like to participate in SOCK Week, you can download the following resources to display and share within your community, using the #SaveOurCountryKids hashtag.
