Bravehearts is Australia’s leading voice for child protection and has been dedicated to protecting Australian children for more than two decades.
Our White Balloon Day campaign, endorsed and funded by the Department of Social Services National Initiatives, is providing local governments across Australia with vital resources to assist Councils in following the recommendations of the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse including the 10 Child Safe Standards and Recommendation 6.12.
The Royal Commission’s recommendation 6.12 calls on all levels of government nationally to help protect children in their communities by taking an active role in promoting child safe messages. To assist Councils in meeting the Royal Commission’s recommendations, we’ve provided FREE resources to promote White Balloon Day in the media and across social media and online platforms to demonstrate your support for child safe communities. These resources can also assist Council in informing local institutions of Bravehearts’ specialised online child safety information, resources, education and training programs.
