SASS submission - Legislative Inquiry into the Child and Family Centres

17 March 2017

SASS provided comment to the Legislative Council Select Committee’s Inquiry into the Child and Family Centres. Specifically, we provided comment on the role of the Centres in primary prevention of child sexual abuse and problem sexual behaviours by helping families to strengthen their skills, knowledge, and levels of functioning, as well as social connectedness. We also noted the vital role that Centre staff can play in identifying and responding to suspected child sexual assault and problem sexual behaviours.
