Information for Families

We care about kids and their families

Snowflake Place is a child-focused and child-friendly facility for young victims and their caregivers. Our facility is designed to create a sense of safety and security. We aim to help victims and families feel comfortable and supported when they enter our doors.

Best practice forensic interviewing

The forensic interview is the cornerstone of investigations into child abuse and the beginning of the path to healing for victims and their families. High quality and best practice child forensic interviewing is a core service of Snowflake Place and critical component to the successful prosecution of child abuse cases.

Snowflake Place has two dedicated child forensic interviewers who conduct victim interviews.  They complement the investigation process through the provision of neutral, unbiased, consistent and high-quality child forensic interviewing. A forensic interview is scheduled as soon as possible following a disclosure abuse.
