About the event

National Child Protection Week: 3 – 9 September 2023

Overarching message: ‘Every child in every community needs a fair go’

This year National Child Protection Week will continue to champion the message ‘Every child in every community needs a fair go’.

This message captures the essence of  National Child Protection Week which aims to promote a safe and healthy  life for every child, now and into the future.

2023 theme: ‘Where we start matters’.

In 2023, the message that ‘Every child in every community needs a fair go’ will be complemented with the theme ‘Where we start matters’.

Where we start our lives in terms of where we live, the  resources available to us, and the opportunities presented to us make a  significant difference to our life outcomes.

Where we start as a service sector in offering children and  their families support and assistance makes a significant difference to  life outcomes.

Where we start as decision makers in addressing large  complex policy problems such as child abuse and neglect, also has a  significant personal, social and economic outcomes.

The aim of Child Protection Week is to bring together partners to focus  on addressing the significant harms being experienced by children in  Australia. By working collectively to change the trajectory of these  children and families, we can reduce the number of children who may come  in contact with the child protection system. The time to act is now.
