After launching the first Keeping Kids Safe Resource Kit in September 2014 requests were made by the public to produce versions for children with special needs and those with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Heritage.Denise Morcombe said "These new components are written specifically for children with special needs and children and young people with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander heritage. It differs from our original resource kit material largely by way of its message delivery. Working with industry experts it was identified that our key words: Recognise, React, Report remain important and should still be the cornerstone of our safety material. But keep it targeted, short and sharp , fun and engaging."
By telling stories relevant to our indigenous and special needs friends and using language that is appropriate I think we have a unique combination that will go a long way to assisting these most vulnerable children"The Daniel Morcombe Foundation collaborated with a number of agencies and stakeholders to assist them in compiling material that would suit the needs of these groups.
This new educational DVD will be supplied free of charge to schools and community groups around Australia. It has a series of menu prompts that are in alignment with the Daniel Morcombe Child Safety Curriculum and reinforce the key safety words; Recognise, React and Report.Filmed scenarios include age appropriate topics covering: Recognising Body Clues, Reacting unsafe situations, Reporting to people on your Safety Network as well as safe internet and safe Mobile Phone Use and others.
