The community around parents, and the support available to them, is hugely important to healthy child development. For families experiencing poverty and stress, raising children can be like sailing in rough waters. Just as we provide lighthouses and safe harbours, we can help parents with services like counselling, quality child care and financial support.
The best foundation any country can have is healthy, safe, well-educated children and young people who are confident in themselves and their future. But right now, children and young people are being harmed because we don’t give families stability and support when children need it most. We can and must do better for our children and young people.
The Every Child campaign is a national movement launching Tuesday August 27th to ensure all children and young people can thrive because families are able to get the right support at the right time.
The launch of the Every Child Campaign is an ideal opportunity to reignite the conversation about the more than 45,000 children who live in care in Australia today. This number is unacceptably large and it’s well-documented that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children are the most significantly affected.
Sign up to get campaign updates and find out how you can help children and young people have the stable, secure and loving family environments that are so important for healthy development.
