Child Protection Week – Poverty and Child Safety and Wellbeing

Child Protection Week - Poverty and Child Safety and WellbeingNational Child Protection Week is a campaign held annually across Australia to raise awareness of child abuse prevention. Join David Tennant, CEO of FamilyCare as he talks about Poverty and Child Safety and Wellbeing on Tuesday 6 September at 11:00am.

Poverty affects one in six Australian children. Research shows that the first five years of a child’s life are critical in their cognitive, social and emotional development, and children who grow up in poverty are more likely to experience a cycle of disadvantage into adulthood.

National Child Protection Week embraces the overarching message that ‘Every child, in every community, needs a fair go’. In particular, this year we will be shining a light on children growing up safe and supported. Children and young people thrive when they grow up safe, connected and supported in their family, community and culture. They have the right to grow up in environments that support them according to their needs, now and into the future.
