Protective Behaviours Australia

The Protective Behaviours Program was developed by Peg Flandreau West in America in the mid 1980s. She brought together a simple but effective preventative safety program. The program is for all ages – from birth to our older years.

The community expects safety for all and PBA has representatives in most States and Territories to assist the community to feel safe. Please read more in our website and contact your local representative to learn more.
