This beautifully illustrated storybook and guide have been created to teach children about safeguarding in its broadest sense: that being safe from harm is the most important right they have, and that the trusted adults around them will always take action to protect, believe and respect them.

Covering all of the fundamental aspects of safeguarding, the Protective Behaviours (PB) process, and teaching children about the safety continuum, networks of support and persistence, the invaluable lessons in this resource help children develop their own internal measure of safety and will teach them how to ask for help if they ever feel unsafe.

The set includes:

  • Something Has Happened: Supporting Children’s Right to Feel Safe – An engaging storybook, offering opportunities for discussion throughout, helping children learn about difficult feelings, who they can go to for help and what do to when it feels like nobody is listening
  • A Practical Resource for Supporting Children’s Right to Feel Safe – A practical resource that includes session plans and activities to accompany the story and fundamental guidance around safeguarding for the adult

This is a must-have resource for teachers, support staff and other professionals working with primary and lower-secondary aged children.
