This year’s National Child Protection Week (1st – 7th September) aims to highlight the need for community and family support in protecting children. The Catholic Archdiocese of Perth Safeguarding Program aims to help raise awareness of our collective responsibility to support families and help children thrive. Our Safeguarding Officers and the Catholic community as a whole, are committed to providing an environment free from harm. By building stronger communities, we can create safer environments for children.
The Child Protection Week Mass will be celebrated on Sunday 8th September. This year children have the opportunity to draw or write about the adults or communities that help them thrive. Competition forms are available for downloading from the link below or at your parish. Entries close Wednesday 21st August.

In a two-part series, leader and pioneer in child protection, Andrea Musulin, talks of dramatic changes taking place in the Catholic Archdiocese of Perth to face abuse head on and to minimise future opportunities of its reoccurence.
Comparing her present role to her previous work, Musulin said that the Catholic Church is a very different place to working with the Police.
