Child Protection and Abuse Prevention Policy

Here at Stopping Violence Services, we are committed to the prevention of abuse and neglect of children and young people. We are guided by the principle that family have a main role in protecting and caring for their children and young people, and we are guided by the ideal that the best interests of the child or young person should be the first consideration.
