Mikakos fights for child abuse programs

first_imgMP Jenny Mikakos has announced the state government will fund vital research into an early intervention program for the neglect and abuse of children. Committing $250,000 over three years for two research projects, Ms Mikakos says the program will offer new ideas on how to support children at risk of harm.“We’re getting the best evidence about how to protect our most vulnerable children,” says Ms Mikakos.“This is an innovative program that offers fresh ideas for supporting children who are at risk of harm.”Under the program, the children attend a unique childcare centre and have specialist carers.The research will look at the impact of high-quality early education services and attachment focused child care, where a child forms an attachment with a particular carer.The ‘Early Years Education Research Project’ is an Australian first, pilot program run by the Children’s Protection Society that has been in action since 2010. The program works with children aged from birth to four years who have experienced, or are at risk of, neglect or abuse. Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagramlast_img
