It’s time plan your 2019 National Child Protection Week Activities

National Child Protection Week occurs each year in the first week of September. In 2019, it is September 1 – 7.

With a little under two months to prepare, it is time to get planning. In fact, the Queensland Child Protection Week Grant Applications and Award Nominations closed in May!

This year, the National Association for the Prevention of Child Abuse and Neglect (NAPCAN), which oversee NCPW each year, have made it as easy as possible to support National Child Protection Week 2019.

NAPCAN has just launched their ‘Get Involved’ page for Child Protection Week 2019. This page is a ‘one-stop-shop’ to get everything you need to plan your child protection week event and activities.

Organisations can pledge their support, just like PCA and many other already have.

If individuals haven’t already, they can sign up for NAPCAN’s newsletter.

NAPCAN has created a dedicated NCPW email signature block, and

Like and follow NAPCAN on social media and use the hashtags #NCPW and #playyourpart now and during NCPW in September.


NAPCAN also have a number of resources to support events and activities. New and previous years’ NCPW posters can be ordered through the website or printed directly. Some children’s activities can be downloaded now with more on the way. In the lead up to September, NAPCAN will be releasing more resources and ideas to help with planning and organising events, including their new video.

Also on the website is a link to the Toolkit called Navigating Waters: Talking About Parenting. The toolkit provides simple and practical ways to talk about parenting to reframe the conversation to make parenting a collective issue rather than an individual one. The toolkit is evidence based and backed by contemporary research.

With the launch of NAPCAN’s 2019 campaign, there’s only one question left:

How are you going to get involved with National Child Protection week 2019?
