Children’s safety is our top priority.
Family and Children’s Services of Lanark, Leeds and Grenville is here to protect children so they can grow up safe and free from abuse—which can be physical, emotional or sexual. Neglect is also considered abuse. We support families, helping ensure the protection of their children.
We have a role under the law.
We carry out our work under the Child and Family Services Act, which requires us to investigate possible abuse or neglect of children and ensure the safety of those who need protection. You can learn more about our legal responsibilities here.
Knowing makes a difference.
Sometimes parents don’t realize they’re harming their children because they don’t understand what abuse is, or its consequences. Information on this website may be helpful in describing what abuse is and how to prevent it from occurring. For further information, please speak with your worker or contact our intake worker.
