The Kidz First Child Protection Service provides consultation, support, education and liaison with all agencies with regard to child abuse/protection issues.
Should you ever have concerns for the safety of a child/young person with regards to possible abuse or neglect then please contact the Ministry for Vulnerable Children Oranga Tamariki (MVCOT) on 0508 FAMILY (326459). Children that live within an environment where family violence is occurring can be emotionally affected and are at considerable risk of abuse. Consultation should be made with MVCOT to ensure the safety of these children remains the focus and remember “it’s Not Okay’ for children to be exposed to violence in the home.
