Introduction

The Vision of Parkerville Children and Youth Care

On the 1st March 2011 the Honorable Colin Barnett, Premier of Western Australia officially opened the George Jones Child Advocacy Centre in Armadale.  The opening was a celebration of innovation and success for Parkerville Children and Youth Care, local agencies and government partners who began in 2007 to design, develop and implement this new service for children and young people who have been harmed.

George Jones Child Advocacy Centre Purpose Statement

Preventing and Responding to Child Abuse

  • Uniting people and partners to strengthen our community's response to the safety, treatment and wellbeing of abused children.
  • Working together to meet the needs of each child and family with compassion, understanding and skill.

What is a Child Advocacy Centre?

The Child Advocacy Centre is a place where professionals from different agencies including doctors, police, child protection workers, psychologists, and child and family advocates form a multi-disciplinary team to provide services to care for all the needs of a child or young person who has been abused, and their family.

The services are easily accessible, delivered in a child friendly environment and families can access services for as long as they need them.

For more information on the Centre's programmes and services please visit the George Jones Child Advocacy Centre website.
