National Child Protection Week is coordinated by NAPCAN starting on Father’s Day on the first Sunday of September (1-7 September 2019).

The aim of the week is to engage members of the community in supporting families and protecting children.

In 2019 National Child Protection Week focus on introducing a ‘child development’ communication frame to promote the messages that:

  • Kids do well when parents are supported
  • To raise thriving kids, parents need support to navigate life’s choppy waters
