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 ‘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 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.
Our 2014 posters have now been released, and downloadable versions are now on this website. In the coming weeks, new material including links to educational resources, communication and media kits will be available. The registry for community events organised in support of National Child Protection
Week is now active, and your registered events will be promoted on the NAPCAN website closer to the launch of the campaign.
The key messages for NCPW 2014 continue to be “Protecting Children is Everyone’s Business” and “Play Your Part”. The 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 area. 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.
