National Child Protection Week, held from 6-12 Sept 2020, invites everyone to be part of the conversation. All Australians are invited to look at how they can prioritise the well being of children and to engage in National Child Protection Week – as individuals, as families, as organisations and as a community.
Protecting children is everyone’s business.
NAPCAN CEO, Richard Cooke, says, “The added stress on families due to the coronavirus pandemic means National Child Protection Week is more important than ever.”
“Australia’s children need all of us to be playing our part in keeping them safe and well.”
“As many people as possible – not just ‘experts’ – need to be part of important conversations about putting children first.”
