Key Features

Our mission with Safe Havens is to prevent and deter child sexual abuse

In 2016 there were over 355,000^ formal notifications to Child Protection Services. These statistics are an 8.1% increase from 2014-2015. 11% of women and 5% of men in Australia report an experience with sexual abuse before 15 years. Studies have shown that 1 in 6 women experience physical or sexual abuse before the age of 15. This rate is 1 in 9 for men.

These abuse numbers highlight the scale of the problem and the alarming trend.

The Royal Commission [RC] into the institutional responses to child abuse and the subsequent findings of 2017 have resulted in significant changes to schools' responsibilities. They are now explicitly charged with the obligation to protect children from potential sexual abuse and respond when it occurs. To support this, the RC also has detailed ten standards that define what a safe school is.

Key Benefits

We built Safe Havens to respond to the needs of the Royal Commission into the institutional responses to child abuse. Safe Havens purpose is to help guard our children against abuse and enhance school systems to operationalise new policies focused on delivering a zero-tolerance. It is a scalable, measurable system for the accurate handling of complaints and compliance protocols. With access for students and families as well as staff, the community will see that schools are making a positive impact in this challenging space. 

There are three components of Safe Havens that work together to create a cohesive system that empowers students, schools and communities to act effectively when our children need help.

Safe Havens Personal: Supports students so they can record one's daily perception of safety and physical wellbeing. By creating a heighten awareness students can externalise these feelings and better identify 'at risk' scenarios. In real-time, they can share with family or peers or escalate for support, counselling, guidance and or more formal Safeguarding actions.
