CASPA Services Ltd. is a non-denominational entity which was formed in January 2017. It is an independently run Charity operating under a Board of skilled directors with the purpose of supporting vulnerable children, families and communities.
In its work CASPA actively advocates for child-safe ...practices and reporting, and wholeheartedly supports the findings of the Royal Commission.
CASPA Board and staff are passionate about providing support and protection to those most vulnerable in our communities. We are committed to conducting our work with compassion, transparency and evidence-based understanding.
When CASPA began operating, the staff at that time realised the need to find a name that represented its direction so they consulted some real experts... the children who were in care at that time.
After some thoughtful consideration from those children, Casper The Friendly Ghost was raised as a well-known story about a child living in limbo. The name resonated with the kids and staff because Casper, the ghost, is a child who needs a friend but is mostly invisible to the world.
And so, with a slight spelling modification, it was settled. CASPA is proud of the inclusive way the name came about and how it embodies the work that we continue to do.
