Child protection initiatives

The wellbeing of our children is the responsibility of our entire community.

We work with children and their families to provide assistance or alternative care options to those children who are most vulnerable or at risk of harm.

In partnership with other government and non-government organisations, we are protecting our children and supporting their unique needs, together.
