Raising community awareness about the prevalence and impact of family violence on children is crucial. These Are Our Kids is a collaboration between the not-for-profit and philanthropic sectors with a focus on how we can advocate for the best support for children who have experienced, or are experiencing, family violence.
The project has developed an evidence-based, lived-experience informed campaign with an aim to raise awareness of the impacts of family violence for children and young people both in the short term and over the course of their lifetime.
We have used the Australian Child Maltreatment Study and Deloitte research paper as core tenants of our project and campaign’s credibility.
The focus on multi-type maltreatment, which encompasses various forms of abuse, can help the community understand the complexity, far reaching nature, and severity of the issue. It can also reinforce the predominant finding being that multi-type treatment is endemic in Australia and our children and young people are suffering now.
Please read the Australian Child Maltreatment Report for more information.
