Kids Safety Program

in

On Wednesday, 10 March, members of the Central Desert Regional Council (CDRC) Lajamanu Community Safety Patrol attended a stakeholder workshop as part of the Safe4Kids program.  Safe4Kids works through the school to teach protective behaviours to children, and provide them with a set of tools to use if they feel unsafe. Delivery at the school is followed up with community education sessions, ensuring that adults understand what the children have learned, and recognise the simple hand gestures that can be used to demonstrate feelings of safety or distress.
