Education Programs to Assist Children to Learn How to Protect Themselves and Report Abuse

The LNP has announced that, if elected, they would allocate $1 million to the development and delivery of school education programs to “arm children with the knowledge to protect themselves and to report suspected abuse and sexual assault”.

  1. This proposal is a welcome injection of funding to an area that needs it. It would be great though if the approach weren’t quite so narrow and focus only on sexual abuse and assault. Children need to be empowered with knowledge about their rights in all types of situations that make them feel unsafe and fearful. Western society already has an epidemic of depression and anxiety and it would be groundbreaking for a government to take the lead on providing all school children with the tools to find the help they need when they need it.
