Protecting Australia’s Children

6 October 2009 No Comment

NAPCANThe Council of Australian Governments (COAG) recently endorsed “Protecting Australia’s Children is Everyone’s Business, National Framework for Protecting Australia’s Children 2009 – 2020”.

Strategy 1.2 of the National Framework specifically identifies that the National Association for Prevention of Child Abuse and Neglect (NAPCAN) will be supported to undertake national awareness campaigns to engage the whole community in this issue and it identifies the conduct of a community attitudinal survey as an initial step. The survey will be used as the centrepiece of a community engagement campaign. The campaign was launched on 6th September, the beginning of National Child Protection Week, and will continue through to the end of Children’s Week on 1st November 2009.

The aim is to have as many people as possible, throughout Australia, complete the survey, which is confidential and will mostly be conducted online. A telephone option is also available for those without internet access.

To complete the survey and for further information and resources, see www.preventingchildabuse.com.au.
