Child Protection Week (September 3-9) is an opportunity for the community to remember that we can all play a part to help keep children safe.
Minister for Family and Community Services Pru Goward said the NSW Government is committed to protecting the most vulnerable children and young people in our communities.
“We are investing $1.9 billion in 2017-18 to protect and support our most vulnerable children, young people and their families across the continuum from prevention to guardianship and open adoption,” Ms Goward said.
“We are also working hard with parents to help them change when their children are at risk. When parents cannot change, our focus must be on prioritising the needs of the child for a safe, permanent and loving home for life.”
“Child Protection week is a time for the Mulgoa community to reflect on what we can do to protect vulnerable children and young people and make sure they have stability, certainty and opportunity in their life,” Tanya Davies said.
