Safe Children. Safe Families.
Child Abuse Prevention Service
Who are we?Established in 1973, the Child Abuse Prevention Service (CAPS) is the oldest child abuse prevention organisation in Australia. We are a non-government, non-religious charitable organisation that works with vulnerable children and people across Australia to prevent child maltreatment in all its forms, including emotional, physical and sexual abuse. We provide evidence-based educational programs that build well-being, emotional resiliency and create the strong family environments needed to ensure that children are safe, supported, and loved. Our staff are experienced educational psychologists that are well-equipped to deliver programs designed to increase protective behaviours in children and forever break the cycle of abuse.
Safe Children, Safe FamiliesOne of the key recommendations of the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse concerned the need for prevention education to raise children’s awareness of abuse and develop their resiliency against maltreatment.
