National Child Protection Week - September 5-11, 2021
National Child Protection Week – EVERY CHILD, IN EVERY COMMUNITY, NEEDS A FAIR GO!
5 – 11 September 2021
This year’s theme is about the ‘bigger picture’ in addressing child abuse and neglect.
Being safe and feeling safe begin from strong foundations for families and children – jobs, safe places, housing, health services, social activities, friendly neighbours, businesses and more.
The Salvation Army is actively creating strong foundations when we build healthy communities, provide care, work for justice and create faith pathways through our programs and services.

About the sharer
Keeping children and young people safe and well within organisations is so much more than having policies and procedures in place. A child safe organisation is one that creates a culture, adopts strategies and takes real action to ensure the safety and wellbeing of children and young people is at the centre of its values, decisions and actions. This is a collection of training resources for this benefit.
