Safe families: Love Parenting and the Victim Support Unit

SAFE FAMILIESKerrie Thompson from Victim Support Unit : VOCAL Inc NSW has joined me today. The Victims of Crime who VOCAL support are each tapped in for a myriad of reasons. All too often because experiencing Domestic Violence has made home unsafe.We know parenting is a big gig any day of the week. Parenting a child that doesn't feel safe requires being really usefully tuned in at the very time that it is extra hard to be.That is why external support is so useful. Let's grow community awareness today about VOCAL by asking Kerrie:- what do parents often marvel over when they first tap into VOCAL and realise what you do?- what do you see gets in the way of parents accessing VOCAL earlier than they do?- what do you love that VOCAL gives the kids in the families that find their way to you?- how are most families linked in with VOCAL?- what can a person that is listening to this do if they feel they (or someone they know) would qualify and benefit from your support?-how can community members contribute to the work VOCAL does?#domesticviolence#safety#nurtureCorner Lane Espresso

We know parenting is a big gig any day of the week. Parenting a child that doesn’t feel safe requires being really usefully tuned in at the very time that it is extra hard to be.

That is why external support is so useful.

Let’s grow community awareness today about VOCAL by asking Kerrie:

– what do parents often marvel over when they first tap into VOCAL and realise what you do?

– what do you see gets in the way of parents accessing VOCAL earlier than they do?

– what do you love that VOCAL gives the kids in the families that find their way to you?

– how are most families linked in with VOCAL?

– what can a person that is listening to this do if they feel they (or someone they know) would qualify and benefit from your support?

-how can community members contribute to the work VOCAL does?
