$500K lifeline saves Bravehearts
"Child protection advocates say they are relieved a successful education program will continue running in regional and remote Queensland.
Bravehearts has received more than $500,000 in federal funding to continue visiting children in the state's north to teach them about sexual assault, abuse and bullying.
Founder Hetty Johnston says the program has so far reached more than 40,000 children and their families.
"I was look just terrified that the funding would dry up and there would be no other source," she said."
