National Child Protection Week invites all Australians to play their part to promote the safety and wellbeing of children and young people. Click here for a reflection from Catholic Social Services Victoria on the challenge posed by recent reports about vulnerable children, including As a good parent would from the Child Safety Commission.
Among other things, 'a whole of society response is needed. We are all called to take responsibility for our own behaviour, but also to play our part in changing the general culture through our impact on those around us.'
Congratulations to Vicki Clark our new Life Member and thanks to Vicki for her inspirational affirmation of the importance of Catholic social services to the Church and to the people.
