"One Death is Too Many"
    WA Police Department
    In the 12 months since we last marched, there have been 16 recorded homicides in Western Australian due to  family and domestic violence.
  • The Facts
    "Child Sexual Abuse"
    One in three girls and one in six boys will be abused before the age of 18years.  In order to work towards preventing children becoming victims of abuse, it is vital to educate children on their rights of personal safety.
  • The Laws
    "Sexting Is Illegal"
    Don't end up on the Sex Offender Register
    40% of 588 girls surveyed in Australia have been involved in sexting. In 2010, 160 youths between the ages of 10 and 17 were charged with child pornography offences. Young lives are being damaged, say no to sexting.

    When a child says they have been abused BELIEVE THEM; it's a powerful part of their healing process. When we don’t believe, we run the risk of subjecting them to further abuse.

Working with local Schools

CSSI works in partnership with Protective Behaviours WA (PBWA) and local schools to deliver the Protective Behaviours program. If you would like more information about CSSI delivering PB in your school, please contact CSSI.

Protective Behaviours Program

The Protective Behaviours Program is child-focused, and founded on the fundamental belief that children have a right to physical and psychological safety at all times, and that we as individuals, parents, communities and governments must play a part in protecting children of all ages and walks of life.

1. “We all have a right to feel safe all of the time.”
2. “Nothing is so awful that you can’t talk with someone about it .”
The two themes contain much of the essence of the Protective Behaviours content and are used throughout the  program.

– Because 93% of abused children are abused by someone they know and trust.
– To empower people with the right to feel safe.
– To give children and adults permission to talk to someone and ask for help when they unsafe, scared or worried.

Working with Parents/Carers

CSSI in partnership with PBWA and the Rangeway Child and Parent Centre and GREC (Geraldton Regional Community Education Centre) will be delivering Adult PB workshops.

The sessions encourage Parents/Carers to develop a relationship with your child/children that encourages them to speak to you about issues that concern them.  Parents/Carers also gain an understanding of the PBWA program that is delivered in schools focusing on the themes, concepts and strategies of the life skills program.
