Child abuse and neglect is Australia's most significant social problem.
Last year over 30,000 Australian children were proven to have been abused or neglected.
The mission of NAPCAN (National Association for Prevention of Child Abuse and Neglect) is to prevent child abuse and neglect and to ensure the safety and wellbeing of every Australian child.
The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child underpins all of NAPCAN's work.
Our strategy is to motivate and empower all adults to advocate on behalf of children by influencing behaviour, policy, practice and the law.
