NCC is making child protection everyone’s business.

The last week of May is Child Abuse Prevention
week on the National Council’s calendar of activities.  The child
protection week was started in 2005 with the aim of promoting awareness on the
need to keep children safe and families strong in our community.

NCC offers suggestions to the community for Child Protection Week

Give your
time: get involved with other parents in your community; help vulnerable
children and their families; start a playgroup.

Simple support for children and parents can be the best way to prevent child abuse.
After school activities, parental education classes, mentoring programmes, and
respite care are some of the many ways to keep children safe from harm. Be a
voice in support of these efforts in your community.
