National Child Protection Week 2014

For over 20 years NAPCAN has been running an annual National Child Protection Week campaign developing multimedia, visual and text resources to increase awareness and understanding of the importance of primary prevention to reduce child abuse and neglect in Australia.

The PLAY YOUR PART campaign builds on the strengths of previous years and has evolved to provide support to communities to act on the core message, “protecting children is everyone’s business”. Along with internationally acclaimed videos, such as the ‘Children See, Children Do’ , NAPCAN has created practical tip sheets and resources for community members to develop campaigns and projects responding to local needs.

NAPCAN’s campaigns aim to provide communities and individuals with practical information on how to ‘Play Your Part’ and to embed primary prevention messages into social discourse, and provide a platform for communities to be empowered, resourced and mobilised to take action at a local level.

The key messages for NCPW 2014 will continue to be “Protecting Children is Everyone’s Business” and “Play Your Part”. The PLAY YOUR PART campaign invites you, your family, your workplace and your community to get involved in promoting the wellbeing and safety of children and young people in your local


Previous year's National Child Protection Week resources can be accessed at posters or videos.

In the coming months new material including links to educational resources, downloadable posters and communication and media kits will be available from this page. A registry for community events organised in support of National Child Protection Week will also be available closer to the week, with registered events promoted on the NAPCAN website.

Please help spread the word about National Child Protection Week to your family, friends and community - share with each other how your community is keeping children and young people safe.

If you have any questions or suggestions for things you'd like to see included in this year's NCPW - Play Your Part campaign please email or call 8073 3300.

We look forward to sharing the 2014 campaign with you in the coming months.
