Theme - National Child Protection Week

National Child Protection Week: 1-7 September 2024

Overarching message: ‘Every child in every community needs a fair go’

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. 

Many of our supporters may choose to continue to focus on this overarching message. However, many of our partners tell us that they value having a fresh annual theme to focus their local conversations each year.

So…. to build on last year’s theme of ‘Where we start matters’, this year’s theme will be: ‘Every conversation matters’.

2024 theme: ‘Every conversation matters’

In 2024, the National Child Protection Week 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.

Conversations can help us understand issues, craft solutions, value community knowledge, and build the brains and social connections of children and young people.

Conversations between
…children and their caregivers matter (from the very earliest days)
…children and their peers matter
…families with teachers, doctors, and other professionals matter
…friends or neighbours matter

…decision-makers and the communities they serve matter.

And, of course, conversations in the public realm and media matter…

So this National Child Protection Week we invite you to speak up – and speak together – about what needs to change for every child in every community to have a fair go.

This theme provides a platform to:

  • engage in important conversations,
  • promote the value of conversations, and
  • equip us to have conversations that keep kids safe.

Let’s use this theme to explore and talk about the many ways that conversations matter for children, young people and their families.
