Help us educate people on how to protect children from abuse and neglect.

Main image

Sadly, New Zealand has one of the worst records on child abuse and neglect among the world's developed countries. We can all do more, and must do more, to help our kids. And it starts with education.

There is no compulsory training in New Zealand for people who work with children (doctors, nurses, teachers, kindergarten helpers, sports coaches and so on) on how to spot and deal with the signs of child abuse and neglect.

Safeguarding Children Initiative is a registered charity founded by frontline staff in nursing, police and health, who were appalled at the lack of education and training available, and decided to do something about it.

Our seminars and eLearning have been accessed by many thousands of people working with children in New Zealand. They tell us our training gives them the skills they need to support vulnerable children in their care.

We have worked with major national organisations in sport, healthcare and education. We also support individual schools, GP surgeries and others who need help to improve the policies and practices around child protection.

We receive no government funding and rely upon private donations and support to continue.

Both our seminars and our eLearning give adults the vital tools to help a child in need.

$20 will help us print resources to hand out at a seminar or workshop

$45 will give one person access to our eLearning

$65 will give one person a place on one of our half day seminars or workshops
