2017 Play Your Part Awards now open for nominations!

The Play Your Part Awards recognise organisations and individuals who are working to create safer, healthier and happier environments for children.

We all have a part to play in keeping children safe and well, and we would love to hear about some of the inspiring primary prevention activities you, or others, are doing in your community.

Initiatives that reduce children’s risk of experiencing abuse and neglect are not always easy to identify, but are the kinds of activities that help keep kids safe and provide them with communities where they can thrive. Activities such as play groups, community events and scholarships are just some examples of work that encourages positive support for children, young people and their families.

We are really excited to hear about as many different exciting projects as possible so please spread the word about the Play Your Part Awards and ensure those making a difference in your community get the recognition they deserve.

Nominations close Tuesday 4 April 2017 and the recipients of the Play Your Part Awards will be announced in National Child Protection Week, 3rd – 9th September 2017.
