This year’s National Child Protection Week was launched by Carnarvon Family Support Services with a morning tea event at Gwoonwardu Mia. This year embraced the overarching message that ‘Every child, in every community, needs a fair go’. Carnarvon Family Support Services held a morning tea event to celebrate this important week and launch the new Carnarvon Protective Behaviours referral program. The program focuses on education and training sessions for children and families in Carnarvon. CEO Andrea Muslin proudly announced the program with support from various stakeholders.

The morning included performances from Community College students and a presentation of a local art competition for children aged between 4 -17 years. The morning presented a united front from various organisations, including the Shire, which has been actively advocating for additional services and programs in our community.

Shire President Eddie Smith said,  “Andrea and the team at Carnarvon Family Support Services are to be commended for their ongoing efforts and for launching the new program, which is a first for regional Western Australia. Leaders such as Andrea contribute to a united community working together to make sure every child in our community has a fair go.”  

Carnarvon Family Support Services launched two vital resources, which are available from Lotteries House on Camel Lane. More information about National Child Protection Week is available here: https://www.napcan.org.au/
