Founded by UniSA and the Australian Government in 2005, the Australian Centre for Child Protection is internationally renowned for advancing child protection policy and practice.
Preventing child abuse and neglect is our highest priority. Through research and professional education we seek to identify the best practices to prevent and reduce child maltreatment in vulnerable and high risk populations.
With an emphasis on building the evidence base and boosting best-practice care for children who are at high risk, our multidisciplinary team works on a range of projects with collaborators from government, community, academia, philanthropic and professional organisations and the not-for-profit sector.
The Australian Centre for Child Protection is funded by the Australian Government through the Department of Industry, Innovation, Science, Research and Tertiary Education.
