Help us reach more children
The topic of sexual abuse can feel overwhelming, and the statistics don’t help:
- 1 in 5 children will be sexually abused before they turn 18
- 1 in 12 girls will be sexually abused before their 6th birthday
The problem, including the issue of consent is complex, and it can be hard to know what to do.
As a community, we can bring about culture change!
But we need to start early. This is why Body Safety Australia exists.
Yet, some communities are unable to access our programs due to a lack of vital resources, or isolation due to disability or geography.
We provide positive, evidence-based programs to educate adults and professionals working with children on abuse prevention, as well as empower children to develop healthy, respectful relationships. Keeping children safe means engaging whole communities; teachers, parents, carers, and children.
What can you do?
With your help, we can connect with disadvantaged and marginalised communities to support some of our most vulnerable children.

We’re very friendly, and we like coffee; so if you’d like to talk about how you could help us to prevent sexual abuse, please get in touch.
