Events

Events held during Queensland Child Protection Week give the community a chance to get involved and give their support to the important issues that we promote.

The Queensland Child Protection Week Committee is offering Grants for the staging of public events that positively support the Child Protection Week theme throughout the State.

Non-government organisations, community organisations and networks are encouraged to apply and successful applicants may receive full or partial grants.

Events must embrace the theme of Child Protection Week – Protecting Children is Everybody’s Business – as well as have a community and educational focus.
