Each year NAPCAN coordinates National Child Protection Week to promote the safety and wellbeing of children and young people, and spread the message that “Protecting children is everyone’s business”. NAPCAN’s campaign aims to provide communities and individuals with practical information on how to “Play Your Part” and to embed primary prevention messages into social discourse. It also provides a platform for communities to be empowered, resourced and mobilised to take action at a local level.
In partnership with NAPCAN, the Child Family Community Australia (CFCA) information exchange at the Australian Institute of Family Studies has prepared this resource on prevention of child abuse and neglect. It presents findings from recent Australian and international research to identify activities and strategies that can be put in place to prevent child abuse and neglect before it happens.
