Child Matters are running a one-day workshop in Auckland on the 20th of May, 'Identifying and Responding to Vulnerability and Abuse of Children and Young People'. 

This workshop focuses on understanding the concept of vulnerability and explores factors that contribute to vulnerability, risk and child abuse. 

This workshop will provide participants with information about what to do when they are concerned about the welfare of a child or young person and identify support and help that is available.  

Participants will gain the knowledge and tools to be able to identify when children or young people are at risk and confidently take action to promote their safety and wellbeing.


Participants will learn:

  • The indicators, signs and effects of child abuse
  • How to identify when children and young people are vulnerable to abuse and neglect, and how to intervene early
  • How to identify and respond to children who they suspect may be being abused or neglected or who disclose abuse
  • Do’s and Don’ts in talking to children
  • How to advocate for children and young people when meeting resistance from others
  • Legal requirements about reporting abuse
  • How a Child Protection Policy can help
  • How to deal with our own feelings and responses
