Taking steps to ensure we can make a difference in the lives of children and young people

The last six months have seen the National Centre for Action on Child Sexual Abuse take significant steps to ensure we are able to make a  significant impact in the future for children, young people and their families.

As an organisation, we have been busy preparing and working on some really important initiatives, including working on our Draft Five Year Strategy that outlines the focus of the work of the National Centre moving forward. The draft strategy will be released soon and there will be plenty of opportunity for everyone interested in our work to give some feedback before the strategy is finalised and implementation commences.

The National Centre is committed to ensuring the voices of survivors and others with lived and living experiences are at the heart of our purpose, which we prioritise through three Colleges: a Survivor-led Adult College, a First Nations College and a Children and Young People College.

The Colleges foster opportunities for survivors to provide input and feedback on the National Centre’s strategic directions and share knowledge with and from their communities about what actions need to be taken.

You may remember that earlier this year we held two Survivor-led Adult College meetings. We are thrilled to announce that we have now held our first meeting of the First Nation’s College.

We will tell you more about how the colleges will contribute to the impact of the National Centre over the next few months. Stay up to date with our latest news by signing up for our newsletter here.

The National Centre for Action on Child Sexual Abuse (the National Centre) is an independent, not-for-profit organisation established to increase understanding of child sexual abuse, promote effective ways for protecting children, guide best practice responses and pathways to healing for survivors, and reduce the harm it causes.
