National Child Protection Week

September 10, 2020

This week (6 -12 September 2020) is National Child Protection Week and NAPCAN is celebrating 30 years with the theme ‘Putting children first’.

“Child abuse and neglect is preventable. If we all work together as a community we can create an Australia where all children can grow up safe and well.”

Richard Cooke, CEO, NAPCAN

And today (Friday 11 September) is White Balloon Day, the largest National Child Protection Week campaign by BraveHearts, Australia’s leading child protection organisation.

Wear white to show your support and see how you can get involved, from home, with your friends and family on the White Balloon Day website.

If you would like to create your own social media posts for White Balloon Day, see promotional resources on the White Balloon Day website.
