THE City of Rockingham is supporting Child Protection Week with free workshops promoting children’s safety.

Child Protection Week is a national campaign driven by the National Association for Prevention of Child Abuse and Neglect.

The City will partner with South Coastal Health and Community Services to host workshops delivered by Protective Behaviours WA.

The workshops are suitable for parents, guardians or carers looking to learn more about child safety.

Mayor Barry Sammels said the workshops would give residents the chance to learn about the skills and strategies needed to prevent and reduce child abuse and violence in our community.

“The City has proudly run events and workshops like this during Child Protection Week for the last three years,” he said.

“We have had positive feedback from the community and increased demand for these events.

“The safety and protection of children is a critical issue in our community and workshops like this play a key role in preventing child abuse.”

Creche facilities will also be available.

Parents, guardians, carers, children and teenagers in need of immediate support are encouraged to contact the Kids Helpline on 1800 551 800 or visit Kids Helpline.
