Some of the most vulnerable young people have nobody to turn to in a time of crisis.

When that happens, we can be there for them.

If a child ends up in Police custody it can be scary, unpleasant and difficult to deal with. For the child and their parents. There may be issues affecting behaviour such as housing, drugs or anger management problems.

That’s when CANW can offer the support needed to help keep children and young people out of the criminal justice system.

Because every child and young person has the right to achieve their full potential and build hope in a better future.

We are here for you in complete confidence.
