Educating those that support children is essential, including how to use best practise, trauma informed approaches, anti- victim blaming plus effectively managing disclosures.
Highlighting processes to follow that benefit all, we provide a toolkit and resources.
Under the DA ACT 2021 Schools and Education settings have a duty which states:
“Young people should learn about healthy and unhealthy relationships, focusing on experiences with family and friends both online and offline, considering the positive and negative influences.
They should also learn about ways to help themselves, to help others and to ask for help from trusted adults when needed”
Children are recognised as Victims in their own right for the first time and in turn need the right support and preventative steps.
