The George Jones Child Advocacy Centre enables services traditionally only provided in the city to be provided in the community of Armadale for children and young people in surrounding suburbs.
The child friendly facility is a place of hope for children and young people who have been abused, bringing together child abuse professionals who support the needs of child victims and their families.
This Child Advocacy Centre is an easily accessible visible service in the community, promoting the importance of child safety and wellbeing. The Child Advocacy Centre runs community activities and programmes and supports professionals in their work, facilitating ongoing learning for those who work with children.
The Centre also routinely asks children, young people and parents what they think of the Centre and services provided, continuing to make improvements as required.
The Child Advocacy Centre is officially named the George Jones Child Advocacy Centre. George lived at Parkerville Children's Home as a boy and is now a Parkerville Board member and a very strong supporter of the Centre.
Parkerville Children and Youth Care is committed to this innovative cause.
