National Child Protection Week is a campaign held annually across Australia to raise awareness of child abuse prevention. The campaign aims to engage, educate, and empower Australians to understand the complexity of child abuse and neglect, and work together to prevent it. It does this through the sharing of events and resources to encourage communities to engage in conversations around children’s safety and wellbeing.
National Child Protection Week is a campaign held annually across Australia to raise awareness of child abuse prevention. This year’s campaign will be held between 5 – 11 September.
The staff at CatholicCare Hunter-Manning work tirelessly to support those needing a hand-up in our community. In the last four years, CatholicCare’s Food Programs and Community Kitchens have served more than 85,000 hot and nutritious meals to those in need.
At CatholicCare Social Services Hunter-Manning, everybody is welcome. However, our Community Programs receive no government funding, so we’re calling on the broader community to help us raise enough funds to continue providing these vital services. And after a difficult eighteen months, we expect to be welcoming even more people through our doors.
