"The past two days at the Indigenous Wellbeing Conference have been filled with inspiration, beautiful yarns and passionate calls for action. Lauren presented on empowerment and strength; best practice in child sexual abuse prevention. Lauren explained how while First Nations children are 2-4 times more likely to face this abuse, we need to take a strengths based approach. Focusing on deficits does nothing to help our young mob, but it can keep them vulnerable."
Body Safety Australia’s Superstars program received a bronze award in the community-led category of the 2021 Australian Crime and Violence Prevention Awards (ACVPA).
The ACVPA recognise best practice in the prevention or reduction of violence and other types of crime in Australia and play a vital role in highlighting effective community-based initiatives to prevent crime and violence, before it actually occurs.
