children safe

Our vision: The children and young people of Aotearoa New Zealand are safe from abuse and neglect. 

Safeguarding Children is a registered charity (cc49059) and a leading provider of safeguarding and child protection education and support in New Zealand.

We have trained over 16,500 New Zealanders to recognise the signs of abuse and neglect and know what to do about it.

We work with large national organisations to small community groups and individuals.

Child protection education is not compulsory for people who work with children and young people in New Zealand – we believe it should be.

Our country has one of the worst records of child abuse and neglect in any developed country.
