Safe Children Conference 2019 | priority is to promote a strong safe child environment


The breakout sessions of our conference focus on treatment and healing of victims.  One of our treatment sessions will be presented by Judy Atkinson, who works with many aboriginal groups and supports the survivors of childhood sexual abuse.   Representatives from aboriginal community and children’s services have registered for Safe Children Conference 2019.  

These attendees assist hundreds of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community members through the delivery of many services.  Their priority is to promote a strong safe child environment focusing services on children, families, strength, culture and community.

The Safe Children Conference is run by CAPS (Child Abuse Prevention Service) a non-religious, non-political, non-government benevolent organisation.
