Every child deserves to
be loved

Children are precious gifts. Unfortunately,
some suffer from abuse – even in their
own homes.

Because not all wounds are visible and not all
cries are heard, Give A Voice seeks to raise
awareness of existing child abuse and to
advocate the need for child protection by
working closely with parents, communities,
and you, to protect our little ones and keep
them safe.

improving the lives of individuals and families

management and supportive services, including

Violence Helpline (1800-777-0000).

concerns deserve child-centric, family-focused
and community-based support.

Let's Give A Voice to our children

Give A Voice is an annual awareness campaign organised by Montfort Care Child Protection
to amplify issues of child abuse, and to advocate for child protection.

Child abuse is defined as any act of commission or omission by a parent or caregiver, which would
endanger or impair the child’s physical or emotional well-being, and is judged by community values and
professionals as abusive.

Physical abuse

Any non-accidental act that causes physical
injury to a child constitutes physical abuse. This
includes deliberately causing bruises, burns,
cuts or broken bones by a range of acts such
as beating and excessive discipline.

Sexual abuse

Any act where a child is used for sexual
pleasure, or taken advantage of sexually, is
considered sexual abuse. This also includes
exposing a child to sexual acts or pornography.

Emotional &
psychological abuse

This refers to any act that harms a child
emotionally or psychologically. These acts can
be repeated, or be an isolated extreme incident.

Neglect

Neglect occurs when a child is harmed,
because a parent or caregiver fails to provide
adequate supervision, food, medical care, and/
or clothing that’s appropriate to the child’s age
and level of development.
