It is important that children and young people develop personal safety skills from a well-presented and well-structured personal safety program. Protective Behaviours develops personal safety skills that can be used by children, young people and adults to keep them safe and work towards reducing violence and abuse in the community.
Over recent years there has been an increased awareness of all aspects of children's safety, particularly that of personal safety. The following statistics, however, tell a very different story. We now know that a child or young person is more likely to be harmed by someone they know.
- The Protective Behaviours Consultancy Group of NSW Inc. is a not for profit community organization whose primary objective is to reduce the abuse of children and young people in our community.
- The Protective Behaviours program is an effective primary child abuse prevention strategy.
- Our training and implementation resources are distributed internationally.
