Biography - Kim May
I am an independent Author, I have a passion for educating children around safety, diversity, culture and consent.
There are no other books in the world that speak to
children of this age group in this simple yet profound way.
As an abuse survivor, I have a passion for keeping children safe. Growing up in the Western Suburbs of Melbourne, Australia, was challenging as at the time, family violence and prejudice was a common occurrence. But it was through these challenging moments of my life that I learnt how important it was to have a voice.
I have spent more than 30 years working in social services with children, young adults and older adults in a variety of roles, facilitated protective behaviour programs for young girls with additional needs, and volunteered for the Office of Public Advocates. This journey has given me incredible experience and insight into the needs of our children, and the more vulnerable members of our community.
Sharing such valuable moments with families and children, coupled with extensive training over the years, has enabled me to better understand the important and relevant social issues of family violence, abuse, trauma and neglect, and the lasting impact they have on children and adults.
As I continue to write and publish educational books, it is my hope that they will be used as a tool to give a voice to those who need it, so that we can prevent abuse, trauma and neglect before it has a lasting impact on a person’s life.
