National Child Protection Week

Get Involved

This year National Child Protection Week will run from 1 – 7 September 2024.

Keep an eye on this page for resources that will be added in the lead-up to the week. 

This year National Child Protection Week will continue to champion the message ‘Every child in every community needs a fair go’. 

This message captures the essence of National Child Protection Week which aims to promote a safe and supported life for every child, now and into the future.  

In 2024, the message that ‘Every child in every community needs a fair go’ will be complemented with the theme ‘Every conversation matters’.

Conversations are powerful tools to keep children and young people safe and well.

Following on from the 2023 campaign, NAPCAN and expert partners continue to call on the Commonwealth Government to host a National Summit to Prevent Child Maltreatment. Join us in supporting this call – read more here, and share on social channels with these tiles.
