National Child Protection Week

Leave a comment

Tomorrow is the final day of National Child Protection Week (1st-7th September).

The event is organised by the National Association for Prevention of Child Abuse and Neglect (NAPCAN).  Visit their website here: http://napcan.org.au/

The website has a Resources Hub, which has a good selection of resources including a number of helpful brochures.
Brochures include, but are not limited to: “Alternatives to smacking”, “Use words that help not hurt”, “When a child feels sad”, and “Keeping children safe from sexual abuse”.

On the topic of child protection, there is still the video file from the “Child Protection for Workers” seminar (held in April this year) available on SiteMap.  Click on the Training Resources link from the front page of SiteMap.  This item is an internal file and you’ll need to be connected to the appropriate server for access.

The Australian Institute of Family Studies provides links to numerous studies, facts and statistics from their website.

The following guidelines regarding child protection are available through their site

Please comment if you have other resources you’d like to share with your colleagues.
