Why take the #BraveChallenge?

By taking the # BraveChallenge you will be helping in the fight against sexual child abuse.

1 in 4 Australians have experienced child sexual abuse, but did you know that 1 in 3 Australians don’t believe it’s a problem to be concerned about? We need YOUR HELP to change this!

Child sexual abuse is enabled by secrecy and silence. As long as it remains ‘out of sight and out of mind’, children are at risk. Together, we must fight this crime by breaking the silence. We must be brave!
