The Australian Government recently held a public consultation process to inform the design of the National Centre for the Prevention of Child Sexual Abuse (the National Centre).
Eden Therapy Services were invited, along with survivors and other interested stakeholders, to have a say in a National Survey which will help inform the scope, function and priorities of the National Centre.
