ChildSafe is a not for profit harm prevention charity of over 10 years and in that time, we have created safer environments for over 200,000 children in Australia. This is our story. Our purpose we believe is to enable trusted environments for the children in the care of organisations.
The reality is abuse is real, it happens and it is damaging for life to those who experience it like this story –
“I was abused for many years as a child and I don’t want anything to happen to my children or anyone else’s children. So organisations please do everything you can and everything you should do to keep our children safe.” - Alex | Mum
We realise our work is incredibly important with 1 in 5 children sexually abused before the age of 18. We choose to partner with organisations, individuals and businesses that believe these statistics are not acceptable in our time, in this nation and preventing harm and abuse of children should be our highest priority.
We are aiming to raise awareness and $50,000 for ChildSafe at through this event, specifically to help us fund opportunities to connect with sporting clubs, as we have identified a huge gap in this industry in their child safety practices. Join us as we work to achieve our goal of enabling trusted environments for children, sporting clubs and the community.
