NAPCAN Breakfast

The Department of Children and Families joined with the National Association for Prevention of Child Abuse and Neglect (NAPCAN), other community stakeholders and non-government organisation partners to celebrate the official launch of National Child Protection Week in the Northern Territory.

This is the sixth year that the Department has partnered with NAPCAN to host the annual breakfast in Darwin. The theme for 2016 is ‘Stronger Communities, Safer Children’.

Chief Executive Officer for the Department of Children and Families Ms Anne Bradford recognises this week as an important annual event that raises awareness about child abuse and neglect across Australia. “Child protection is everybody’s business, and active participation by people from all walks of life in the upbringing and welfare of children can help create stronger communities and more resilient children,” Ms Bradford said. “The Department is committed to forming closer working relationships with our service providers and partner organisations working in the areas of family support and child protection. “These partnerships are essential for building and maintaining strong community networks and the delivery of support services.”

The breakfast included the NAPCAN Play Your Part Awards for inspiring prevention initiatives.
