National Child Protection Week 3-9 September 2023
This year National Child Protection Week will continue to champion the message ‘Every child in every community needs a fair go’. This message captures the essence of National Child Protection Week which aims to promote a safe and supported life for every child, now and into the future. In 2023, the message that ‘Every child in every community needs a fair go’ will be complemented with the theme ‘Where we start matters’.
The aim of Child Protection Week is to bring together partners to focus on addressing the significant harms being experienced by children in Australia. By working collectively to change the trajectory of these children and families, we can reduce the number of children who may come in contact with the child protection system. The time to act is now. You can use this theme in ways that are most relevant to those you work with.
For instance this could include focusing on:
* Supporting parents to access services so that all families have the opportunity to give every child a great start
* Supporting organisations to be safe and child-focused so they can give every child a great start
* Supporting communities and making sure that every neighbourhood has what it needs to give every child a great start
