APCAN has released its 2016 National Child Protection Week (4 to 10 September) posters.
The Stronger Communities, Safer Children poster illustrates this year's theme with a drawing from Shannon Kassell from Dubbo College, Delroy Campus.
National Child Protection Week, now in its 26th year, supports and encourages the safety and wellbeing of Australian children and families through the Play Your Part Awards, events, programs and resources.
This week the South Australian Government released its Royal Commission report into the state's child protection systems.
Last week the Federal Government announced a Royal Commission into the Northern Territory's juvenile justice system.
And nationally, the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child sexual abuse continues to uncover the way in which many, many different organisations dealt with historical complaints of abuse.
Never before have our community and our lawmakers' attention been so sharply focused on the failures of individuals and institutions to protect children.
