Protective Behaviours "A Whole of Community Responsibility" workshop has been developed to provide workers in child related industries with an enhanced understanding of prevention activities and equip them with strategies that promote child wellbeing and safety. The program also incorporates the All Children Being Safe (ACBS) program which is designed to educate children and community members in a non-threatening manner about the role adults/communities play in keeping them safe. ACBS explores messages around safety with children through the use of storytelling and interactive activities.
The workshop is aimed at people working with children aged three (3) to six (6) years.
