Carers SA is committed to Safeguarding Children and Young People and supports the Bright Futures project – a Daniel Morcombe Foundation national education and training project addressing the issues of problematic and harmful sexual behaviours (PHSB), technology assisted harmful sexual behaviours (TA-HSB) and child sexual exploitation (CSE).
Equipping children, the adults who care for them, and front-line professionals with the skills to identify the risk factors and potential signs of abuse as early as possible is vital to ensure children receive timely intervention and support.
