IAssistSafety helps children learn protective behaviours. All children deserve to be safe. Using a hand IAssistSafety allows a child to identify 5 adults who they could ask for help if feeling unsafe. The hand assists children to remember their safe people. The adults should be people the child sees regularly, people they can trust and people who will listen to the child. These 5 adults will help the child to be safe if they are scared, worried, sad or just need help. Use the name, phone number and image or photos of the adult and add it to the child’s hand. Your child’s hand can be emailed, saved in your gallery, used as a screen saver or printed. This App helps to give your child a voice in keeping themselves safe.
