Save the Children Welcomes Child Protection Register
Save the Children Welcomes Child Protection Offender
Save the Children welcomes the government’s
moves to introduce a Child Protection Offender Register.
Child protection is a priority for Save the Children’s

We commend the New Zealand government
for enabling progressive legislative changes to protect
children from convicted offenders.
Such commitment to
keeping children safe, is a demonstration of New Zealand’s
leadership when it comes to creating protective frameworks
and laws to protect them.
