SafeCare's approach is to prevent cases of neglect before they escalate into child protection services and more serious harm is caused to young children. The preventative programme provides one-to-one support for parents of young children at risk of, or reported for, maltreatment.
Delivered over twenty weeks, it focuses on four modules: Parent-Child Interaction, Home Safety, Child Health Care, and Counselling and Problem Solving Skills.
