. . . a tough topic but done with such sensitivity, professionalism and humour. Informative and respectful to children, young people, their carer’s and their community. This is the epitome of good collaborative, educative work at all levels.

Preventing Childhood Sexual Abuse with Whole Community Education


It is never a child or victim’s responsibility to protect themselves from abuse. Body Safety Australia support communities in preventing abuse and help create generational change where sexual and gendered violence is no longer normalised.

Culture change occurs when caring teachers and parents are supported in modelling asking for, and respecting consent so that this becomes the standard that young people uphold as they become adults. Children are taught, not only their right to bodily autonomy, but their responsibility to respect the bodies and feelings of their peers.

We are Australia's only evidence-based protective behaviours and body safety program specifically tailored for your community. Body Safety Australia has been featured on SBS Insight, Kidspot, Preschool Matters and School Governance
