What can I do if I don’t feel safe?

If you or somebody you know feels unsafe, you can tell an adult you trust. This could be a parent or carer, a family member, a trusted friend, a teacher or someone who works at your school, a doctor or counsellor, or one of the Communicare staff from our programs. We are always willing to listen to you.

If you have something you want to say about Communicare, you can fill out our Children and Young People Feedback form.

Remember, the most important thing to us is that you are okay. You will not get in trouble for making a complaint.

After you report that you feel unsafe, we will make sure your concerns are heard and that you do not deal with them alone.
