Children’s charity Sunnykids will today launch a new program to support vulnerable children in need on the Sunshine Coast.
‘It Takes A Village’ is a sponsorship program that delivers prevention, crisis and early intervention services in schools.
CEO Chris Turner says important factors in child security are economic stability, healthcare, education, cultural connectivity and safe parenting.
Chris Turner: “And what research around the world tells us is that children who have those five things working well in their life are not going to end up neglected and abused. So it really is a preventative way of working. It’s about getting in there and solving the problem before the problem takes hold.”
