Remember nights out for the right reasons

Parties should be a fun way for kids to socialise and enjoy themselves, but importantly - parties need to be safe!

Although most celebrations go off without a hitch, sometime things go wrong. The consequences of parties going wrong can be traumatic - from issues such as home damage or financial loss; to legal implications and psychological trauma.

Parties that do go wrong are usually poorly planned and disorganised. Good planning can reduce the risk of potential problems before the party begins, saving difficulties later on. provides information to help you minimise the risks so that you and your guests can have a fun and hassle-free party.

The site provides strategies to help make your party safe and enjoyable, as well as an online notification form to notify police of your party.

By notifying NSW Police of your party you will ensure that if things go wrong, police have the information needed to help. There are many things to consider when planning a party, but remember, pre-planning is the best policy to make your party a great success!
