Parents and carers have an important role to play in keeping their children safe. The transition from adolescence to adulthood is one of rapid change, of increasing connection with peers, and of emerging independence from the boundaries of home, school and family.

Violence can be physical, sexual or emotional and can occur in many different settings including the community, school, workplace and within family relationships. Sometimes violence is directly linked to bullying.
