Adults Supporting Kids ASK

Do you have worries about the safety of a child, young person or family?

Vision and mission

ASK's mission is to remove the stigma of asking for help early and often before reaching crisis point. It is OK to ASK for help. So ASK early and ASK often. Your family is important and so are YOU.

How Adults Supporting Kids (ASK) can help

Anyone in South Australia who is concerned about the safety and wellbeing of children or families can now find and access support services in their local area by visiting www.adultssupportingkids.com.au (ASK).

The ASK website contains resources on a wide range of issues, including mental health, financial support, and domestic and family violence. The Service Directory contains the details of over 1,000 free and low-cost services across South Australia.

ASK is a safe place for people experiencing difficulties to get the right help at the right time.
