Go Goldfields: Aspiring & Achieving

We agree; #StrongerFamilies #StrongerCommunitiesToday is the third day of National Child Protection Week 1-7 September, led by NAPCAN Play Your Part.

We recommend reading NAPCAN's commitment to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and communities, then reflecting on how to play your part - ow.ly/yqHb50vSYsG

What we love about NAPCAN's commitment:
- acknowledged the devastating impact of colonisation and recognised the subsequent trauma and its intergenerational effects
- their work is alongside communities and guided by the principles of the Family Matters campaign www.familymatters.org.au/

We especially love these two principles which Opportunity Child is also committed to in our work:
- protect the right of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children and young people to live in culture
- value the cultural expertise and knowledge of Aboriginal and Torres Strait islander communities and organisations

Opportunity Child is committed to play our part. We walk alongside First Nations peoples, to help create stronger communities that can protect and nurture families and children. We acknowledge the suffering (past and present), we value your cultural wisdom and we will listen to your voices.

Let's do better for the children in our communities together, so that all young children in Australia are thriving in their communities.

Gari Yala (Speak the Truth),
Louisa
PS. See you at #SNAICC2019 conference

Go Goldfields: Aspiring & Achieving

“The safety and wellbeing of children and families is one of the primary objectives of the Go Goldfields Family Violence Action Group and Go Goldfields more broadly. We are working to not only better respond to family violence, but also working to intervene earlier and engage the whole community in prevention of family violence. Increasing family safety means increasing children’s ability to thrive and develop to their full potential. It is important work which will take time and effort - but the end result will be a better community for everyone."

Margaret Augerinos, CEO, Centre for Non Violence / Chair, Go Goldfields Family Violence Action Group / Go Goldfields Collaborative Table member.

#GoGoldfields #PlayYourPart #NAPCAN #ChildProtectionWeek2019 #CollectiveImpactWe can all play a part to be lighthouse in the life of a child, young person, or family not just during National Child Protection Week but every day.

Thank you to Jiya from the ACT for this beautiful artwork
