Our Story

CPS is proud of its long and rich history of over 120 years and its mission and journey of preventing child abuse and neglect in Victoria. Today we still are carrying out the mission that our forbearers forged 120 years ago.

Across the range of services we provide to children, young people and families we deal everyday with complex issues of sexual abuse and neglect of children, family violence, homelessness, poverty, mental health, drug and alcohol issues and the trauma that these have on the lives of children and families.

We continually are seeking to improve what we do. Today we are focussed and passionate about being an organisation that is child focussed, innovative and agile in responding to the needs and issues children and families face and trialling and embedding new evidence-based programs.

Our Board, staff and volunteers are committed to ensuring that children get the best start in life and families are provided with support and learning to enable this to occur.
