VOCVoice of the Child

Listen to their voice! - Never dismiss the words of a child. Encourage the children in your care to know how to speak up.

Sharing their thoughts and feelings is one way a child builds emotional resilience.



If your child/child in your care is missing, check all locations, all frinds or aquaintances first, then call the police to report a missing incident.
