Linda, a Playford receiving the NAPCAN Play Your Part Award for Outstanding Prevention Initiative

We got an award for national child protection week

Family by Family has amazing news! We were the South Australian Winners of the inaugural ‘Play Your Part Award’ for National Child Protection Week 2012.

For the last decade, National Child Protection Week (NCPW) has provided individuals, organisations and communities across the country with an opportunity to come together to raise awareness of child abuse and neglect in Australia.

The awards, an initiative of the National Association for Prevention of Child Abuse and Neglect (NAPCAN), was presented to our Seeking and Sharing families in Playford at a morning tea get together at our Para West site.

Teresa Scott, President of the NAPCAN board said, “With people creating many inspiring initiatives throughout NCPW, we felt it was time to recognise the best of the best and showcase their efforts as an example to all of us as to how we can play our part”.
