A platform to identify, report, deter, & manage child abuse

Our mission is to help reverse the moral, financial and reputational cost of child abuse

Identify

Securely connect and support children with a mobile app to build the awareness to spot, track and share details of at-risk moments and persons of concern.

Report

Students, families, workers and communities can share and lodge safeguarding ideas, requests for help to the formal reporting of complaints and more.

Deter 

By posting general signage and public access to the app provide messages to ‘persons of concern’ that our child is protected. The unified risk-based system also minimises errors and maximises a school potential to substantiate allegations and rebuff legal claims.

Case management & system oversight 

A unified secure school and system-based case managements tools enable strict governance controls and systems of record and retention that to support the processing of formal allegations to a school’s reputation.

Safe Havens is a cloud and mobile-first solution designed and built with enterprise-scale with support for public, catholic, independent and or private schools’ systems.

School leadership sit at the nexus to reverse past trends

It is estimated that the 60,000 substantiated investigations in 2016 cost Australian taxpayers about $18 billion a year. That’s about $300,000 each.

 

Let’s say we could reduce the incidents by 5% we would save, not $9 million, not $90 million but $900 million each year.

Prevention over remediation

Re-balance policies, budgets, resources and systems to focus on the prevention of child abuse vs the remediation of the impacts. 

Revitalise reputation

A good reputation is important because it can help distinguish you from competitors, and even be the deciding factor in whether someone chooses one school over the next.

Compliance & productivity

Good governance is at the heart of any successful school. It is essential for an organisation to achieve its objectives and drive improvement, as well as maintain legal and ethical standing in the eyes of shareholders, regulators and the wider community.

Institutions that fail to respond effectively leave themselves [the directors, staff and the organisation] directly exposed to claims, compensation, criminal proceedings, public scrutiny and a loss of trust from their communities.

My Personal Buddy – unifying students, families and schools

 An AI powered mobile app that puts information and support directly in the hands that need it, 24/7

Track health, mood and location for reporting

We use a 5 point graduated scale and a set of emojis to help students score their perception of mood and health. This score is used as a proxy to monitor status over time and connect each measure with location/event references. 

AI assists the identification of at-risk situations

There are many factors that aid in the prediction, the early identification of child abuse. We bring together mental & physical health status; age; geographical location, ethnic background; disability status to power ‘Alert’ and ‘Warning’ statuses for .

Connect students, families and schools

One of the most significant barriers to seeking support at school was feeling uncomfortable talking to adults about sensitive issues. The Personal buddy allows any student to connect to their school. Students and families can connect in a wider bubble. Families can sponsor and promote their own child. Students can sponsor classmates.

Chatbots provide 24/7 support and guidance

Chatbots provide direct 24/7 365 days per year support for answers to important questions and tactics to respond to more adverse situations.

The in-app chat supports secure, private collaborative communication between student, families, classmates and or the school. At all time the student has full control.
