ROAR Australia

ROAR Australia is committed to the prevention of abuse on children and adults through education on Personal Safety. 

Our programs are based on Protective Behaviours Themes:

  • ‘We all have the right to feel safe at all times’ and
  • ‘We can talk to someone we trust about anything, no matter what it is’

The current Australian statistics of abuse on children and older people clearly indicate that we need to take immediate action to reduce the incidence of abuse in our society.  It is crucial that we, as a nation, ensure that all children and adults have the skills required to protect their own personal safety.

Our programs provide tools and strategies that empower children and older adults to help reduce their vulnerability to abuse, neglect and unsafe situations. We also offer Professional Development and education sessions for teachers, team members, parents and community members.

ROAR Australia’s passion is to help prevent abuse, reduce violence in the community, and promote positive health and wellbeing.
