Children Advocacy Resilience Education

The C.A.R.E. team conducts comprehensive and holistic assessments for every child supported by Safe Futures. Child-centred, family-focused safety, learning and care plans provide an integrated, collaborative response. The aim of the team's work is to create safety, stability and promote healthy development for all children and their families. The team also actively seeks out opportunities to ensure every child is able to reach their academic, sporting, artistic and musical potential and has access to activities that promote social, cultural and spiritual connection to their community.

"For a long time I felt like I didn’t matter, and putting up with everything eventually caught up with me. All I wanted was someone who understood and cared and you guys came along and have made such a big change in me and my beautiful girl's lives, I have no words to describe how thankful I am to all of you."
