10:30 am – 12:00 noon

Everyone has the right to be safe and free from abuse or neglect. No one should experience abuse. “It’s not right!” As neighbours, friends and family members, you can help. You don’t have to “fix” the problem. Caring about the people around you and paying attention when there are signs of trouble are important steps. Small actions can make a big difference.
