Take Action During National Child Protection Week Sept 6th – Sept 12th’09

ANITHA on September 11, 2009

Child Protection Week promotes the belief that it is everyone’s responsibility to make their community child friendly.

Child Protection Week is coordinated nationally by the National Association for Prevention of Child Abuse and Neglect (NAPCAN Incorporated) and, in Queensland, by the Child Protection Week Committee, comprising representatives from a range of government and non-government agencies concerned with child protection issues.

Promoting the value of children and focusing attention on the issues of child abuse and neglect, the objectives of Child Protection Week are to:

  • raise the profile of all issues connected with child protection, including child abuse prevention, treatment, research, education, service provision and support for children, young people and families
  • create a statewide umbrella focus for child protection allowing government and non-government agencies to present a cooperative and coordinated community oriented campaign
  • support and value professionals and volunteer child protection workers by providing ‘best practice’ training and a forum to exchange ideas and information
  • offer a framework to recognise advances in the field, and thereby contribute to better outcomes for all children and young people, especially those who have been harmed or are at risk of harm.
