EVERY CHILD RESPONSE TO CHILDREN'S RIGHTS REPORT RELEASED TODAY:
Statement from Dr Kirsty Nowlan, Co-Chair, Every Child: “The Every Child national alliance urges all governments to act on the recommendations made by Commissioner Mitchell. “Governments view physical infrastructure – the building of bridges, roads, rail and ports – as a top priority. We say infrastructure to support children must be a top nation- building priority.
CHILDREN AT THE HEART OF NATIONAL ECONOMIC STIMULUS:
The looming threat of recession will impact harshly on children, young people and their families. Members of the Every Child alliance – an alliance of 50+ organisations across Australia – have met and agreed that the Federal Government must urgently roll-out an economic stimulus package that mitigates against the risk of deepening hardship and family stress.
TIME TO THINK BIG ABOUT CHILD WELLBEING:
A steering committee of 20+ organisations is calling on governments to think big about promoting the wellbeing of children and young people in Australia to initiate the most significant and valuable nation-building project that has ever been undertaken – the Every Child National Wellbeing Commitment.
