A focus on children and parenting

Protecting and Nurturing Children: Building Capacity Building Bridges initiative (BCBB)
15 August 2016

Paid subscription required

The first Australian policy to promote collective responsibility for children’s wellbeing, the National Framework for Protecting Australia’s Children 2009–2020: Protecting Children is Everyone’s Business, endorses the need for local, state and national agencies, the community service sector and citizens to think and act differently. It calls for a shared understanding that the protection of children means more than ‘mandatory reporting’. Protecting children from abuse and neglect is a responsibility of all sectors and community members.

In 2010, with a grant supporting the National Framework from the then Department of Families, Housing, Community Services and Indigenous Affairs, ACCP developed and delivered the Protecting and Nurturing Children: Building Capacity Building Bridges initiative (BCBB).
