Child Abuse Task Force

1800 700 250

Welcome to the CAT Website

Child abuse and neglect has negative and long-lasting consequences on victims, families and our community.

Our website is designed to give you information about the Child Abuse Taskforce (CAT), child protection and family support services in the Northern Territory.

CAT members are tasked with investigating allegations of serious and complex child maltreatment cases across the Northern Territory.

We aim to raise awareness among children, young people and adults of child protection issues, how to keep ourselves safe and how to report when things go wrong.

Supporting victims and families involves a collaborative interagency approach and support from the wider community. Keeping children and young people safe is everyone’s business.

We have provided links to websites of other child protection and family support services which we have researched and found useful.

Report child abuse and help us keep kids safe!

Coming Events

“If children feel unsafe, they should tell an adult they trust and remember that the CAT is here to help them.”
