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

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


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.


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


Enable students and families to seamlessly connect with their school all via a QR code.

School workhub & professional app

This is a school level work area and dashboard to monitor and manage students at risk of abuse.  Chat, review ideas, respond to requests for information and help. Conduct mandatory reporting obligations and risk assessments, escalate ‘staff’ based allegations to more formal case management processes.

Case management & system compliance

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.

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 .
