child deserves to be safe from abuse.
But the truth is that abuse happens and Koala Place Child and Youth Advocacy Centre is doing something about it.
Forensic interviews for all children/youth victims of abuse are now being done away from police stations and in a warm, non-intimidating environment. Supports are made available to families who are attending the Centre to meet their needs following a multi-disciplinary approach. Community partners work together in multi-disciplinary teams to create a safe environment for children and youth to disclose their stories, be supported and ensure referrals to community agencies.
In 2014 Koala Place opened its doors to officers and child protection workers, and in 2021 the role of the Case Manager / Systems Navigator (CMSN) was added to the Centre. We wish to share our numbers with you to show the impact that we are making on our community.
kids live a healthy and happy life.
Helping to give every child the chance to live a healthy and happy life is the most important work we can do.
