If you're worried a child is being abused, please report your suspicions so authorities can investigate.
Bullying is a form of aggressive or threatening behaviour — either at school, in the workplace or in the wider community.
Financial abuse is when someone steals your money or property, fails to repay money you’ve lent them, or forces you to give them money or sell your property for their benefit.
