Child Safeguarding Week is an annual campaign to promote individual, organisation and community action to prevent child abuse and neglect in Aotearoa.
It provides a platform to increase public awareness about child abuse and neglect, how it occurs and what can be done to prevent it.
The positive is that it CAN be prevented.
Child Safeguarding Week 2023 is placing a spotlight on preventing child sexual abuse. It is a heavy issue but one we should not shy away from if we are to see an end to it.
Because all children deserve to have big smiles on their face
