Did you know that keeping children safe is every adult’s responsibility?

All adults in NSW are legally responsible for reporting child safety concerns of abuse or neglect.

This year CBCity recognised Child Protection Week during the first week of September by hosting a variety of activities and events for all families to help them understand that child protection is everyone's responsibility. We at CBCity are dedicated to creating safe and nurturing environment for children.

We encourage our community to work together to create a City where all children can grow up safe and well.

If you are unsure, make the call!

REPORTING CHILD ABUSE AND NEGLECT

If you think a child or young person is at risk of harm from abuse or neglect, contact the Child Protection Helpline on 13 21 11 (open 24 hours/7 days).

Ring 000 if you or a child are in immediate danger.
