About Us

We believe that it is everyone’s job to keep our children safe, strong and healthy. By working together, we can build strong families and keep our children and young people safe and well cared for. 


We work in many ways with families to help them find their own solutions and achieve their goals, or connect them to the right services within the community. 


If you are worried about a child or family, there are ways you can help.  Find out more about Reporting a Concern.


All children belong in families that love and nurture them. We work with families in lots of ways. Sometimes they just need to be connected to supports in the community. Other times, we will walk beside them so they can get themselves back on track by dealing with problems, and or making changes needed to keep their children safe.   


When the children are at risk, we will work with the family, police and other agencies to make sure children are safe from harm. If the problem persists, there are other ways we might work with the family to find a solution that works in the best interest of the child.



Our babies and toddlers are the most vulnerable. They completely depend on people to take care of them. 

We are all somebody's 7th generation.
