Growing up safe and supported is this year’s theme for National Child Protection Week (4-10 Sept). We know children and young people thrive when they are safe, connected and supported in their family, community and culture.

National Child Protection Week is about working together to reduce the impact of abuse and neglect and ensure children and young people are given the best opportunity for now and their future.
