    There is now an official space to deal with emergency cases when children are abused in Tobago.

    The Children’s Authority Director Safiya Noel says the Child Support Centre will provide a place for children to get immediate attention and it is a safe haven for them.

    She adds that it facilitates the instantaneous removal of children that are deemed to be in imminent danger.

    Ms. Noel says the location is secure, child-friendly, staffed with professionals and aims to be a therapeutic space until a long-term placement can be found for the children.
