Kids Central Toolkit

The Kids Central Toolkit offers workers and services information, resources, videos and tools to use in their work with children, young people and families. The Toolkit is based around six key principles that support child-centred practice. Each principle includes a range of tools and resources, which you can download for your practice. We also offer training to help workers and services learn how to use the Toolkit and develop skills in child-centred practice.

It explores the conditions and factors that facilitate child-safe environments when working with families experiencing domestic and family violence.
