    Child safe environments are safe and friendly settings where children feel respected, valued, and encouraged to reach their full potential. Children and young people have a right to be safe and protected at all times. The Children and Young People (Safety) Act 2017 requires certain organisations provide a child safe environment.

Child and Family Focus SA acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we work, the Kaurna and pay our respects to Elders past, present and emerging. Sovereignty has never been ceded and this was and always will be Aboriginal land.

We appreciate and celebrate diversity in all its forms. We believe diversity of all kinds makes our teams, services,  organisations and communities stronger and more effective.
