MONTEGO BAY, Jamaica —The Child Protection and Family Services Agency (CPFSA) says it will be hosting a Child Protection Forum on Thursday at the Montego Bay Cultural Centre.

CPFSA said the forum, which is to begin at 5:00pm, will be one in a series of community sessions across the island to discuss matters relating to child protection generally.

The event is open to the public and will see a panel comprising representatives from the CPFSA, Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF), Family Court and Jamaica Fire Brigade addressing concerns reaching their varying offices, as well as solutions to safeguarding children and strengthening families.

Other partners to attend include: Road Safety Council, Ministry of Health & Wellness and Ananda Alert.

The Child Protection Forum is a continuation of the CPFSA's child protection campaign, “Every Child Deserves Protection”, which aims to educate the public about the rights of children, issues affecting our children and provide timely child protection tips.

CPFSA said the campaign additionally seeks to encourage Jamaicans to see every child as 'my child', and therefore exercise individual responsibility in ensuring the protection of each child.
