Assessing wellbeing, safety and risk
Children and families need to be provided with timely and effective assessment to determine the factors affecting the safety and wellbeing of their children.
Joint Child Protection Response Program (JCPRP)
The Joint Child Protection Response Program (JCPRP) provides a specialised tri-agency response to child abuse by DCJ, the NSW Police Force and NSW Health. The program operates state-wide and provides a comprehensive and coordinated safety, criminal justice and health response to children and young people alleged to have been subjected to sexual abuse, serious physical abuse and extreme neglect that may constitute a criminal offence.
The underlying principle of the joint partnership is recognition that the safety, welfare, health and wellbeing of all children is paramount. The program’s objectives are:
- protecting children from further harm
- promoting safety, justice and recovery.
