Free workshops on gave those in the child care industry and community members new techniques and ideas to combat the issue of child safety.
The National Association for Prevention of Child Abuse and Neglect visited Mount Isa on October 4 as part of a statewide education program funded by the Queensland Department of Child Safety, Youth and Women.
Two separate workshops were on offer, with participants welcome to attend one or both workshops.
The first was Creating Child Safe Organisations Workshop (4 hours) and Child Abuse and Neglect Prevention/ Mandatory Reporting Workshop (3 hours)
Trainer for NAPCAN Julie Mead said the workshops were about making sure families feel safe and helping them know where they can find support.
"We need everyone to take responsibility by talking to the community," Ms Mead said.
"We also want to get in there early before that child goes to a professional child safety networ.
"It's about not blaming the parents but supporting them."
Ms Mead said she had been travelling all year conducting her workshops and had seen positive results.
