Play your part and protect children

Play your part and protect children

Published: 8th September 2011

This week is National Child Protection Week and all Australians are being encouraged to do their part to help build a society that protects children from abuse and neglect.

The objectives of the 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.

It also aims to create an Australia-wide umbrella focus for child protection, allowing government and non-government agencies to present a cooperative and coordinated community oriented campaign.

The theme this year is ‘Play Your Part’, which highlights the importance of working together to protect children.

National Child Protection Week is a campaign held annually throughout Australia.

Further information is available on the play your part website.
