Safer Communities for Children facilitator workshop

Safer Communities for Children is an inclusive, culturally safe, whole-of- community protective behaviours program, specifically designed for young children aged four (4) to eight (8) years. The program can be delivered by local community members and services across a range of settings such as schools, family centres and early childhood environments in urban, rural and remote settings.
The program is based on seven (7) bush animal stories with specific messages about safety that also reinforce community responsibility to value and protect children.
A unique aspect of the program is that it elicits the voices of children on what makes them feel safe, and encourages adults to respond in ways that are meaningful and relevant for their children and community.
