Partying? Celebrating? Heading out with friends? Planning a few drinks? Going to a house party? Then you have come to the right place!
#MatesKeepItSafe is all about sharing the best tips and info to help you make your next celebration memorable for all the right reasons! This party season, we are here to help you look out for your mates, support one-another and put a few simple steps in place to make sure everyone has a good time, gets home safely and will be ready for the next time!
So what’s it all about? Get the gist from our campaign video:

FREE soft drink!
Ah yes, you read that right! To celebrate the #MatesKeepItSafe campaign, our friends at Campbelltown Catholic Club will be offering free soft drink on Friday and Saturday nights throughout December and January to all patrons who are the designated sober driver.
How does it work? Simply pop your name down at the Club’s reception sign-in desk and you will be issued with a wristband entitling you to free soft drink all night!
All the good stuff: campaign resources (aka freebies!)
We have plenty of cool campaign resources to distribute far and wide, including loads of yummy lollies, nifty silicone phone wallets, very useful pens and of course, the most important ones, our campaign Safer Celebrations Guides and Posters.
The pocket-sized guides contain all our key celebrating tips shown above and are a great resource to share with your friends. (Or for parents / carers / teachers: they are great to give to your young people!)
Download the guide here or contact our team to request the shiny, pretty, printed version!
You can also get your hands on our campaign poster and help share the #MatesKeepItSafe message with the community: Download it here!

The people who make it possible…
A very heartfelt thank you to Campbelltown Catholic Club, our wonderful #MatesKeepItSafe campaign partner. The funding and support provided by the Club is the key to the success (and amazing-ness) of our #MatesKeepItSafe Safer Celebrations campaign.
Campbelltown Catholic Club has partnered up with Youth Solutions each year since 2009, to deliver a Safer Celebrations campaign during the peak celebrating season.
Through the project, Youth Solutions and Campbelltown Catholic Club aim to educate and support young people to celebrate safely and to foster a community which encourages and supports safer partying and drinking practices.
Campbelltown Catholic Club’s support of the Safer Celebrations project complements Youth Solutions’ broader project work and service vision to have a community of healthy, well and connected young people who are prevented from the harms of drugs and alcohol.
Thank you Campbelltown Catholic Club (the Directors, Management and Staff) for being a great mate of Youth Solutions and helping us to keep the region’s young people safe!
Have you heard our campaign ads on the radio? Well, that’s thanks to the awesome support we receive from our campaign media supporter C91.3FM!
A huge thank you to the C91.3FM team for their enthusiasm for this campaign and for helping us to spread the #MatesKeepItSafe message far and wide!
