Where we start matters

September 8, 2023
Every child, in every community, deserves a fair go.

National Child Protection Week takes place in the first week of September in Australia. A NAPCAN initiative, this week reminds us that every child deserves a safe childhood – and that cross-industry collaboration is vital to this conclusion. 

Madonna King’s new book, ‘Saving Our Kids’ was written in collaboration with ICMEC Australia Board Member Jon Rouse APM, and emphasises the importance of a collaborative response to child sexual exploitation and saving children from harm. During 2023’s National Child Protection Week, ICMEC Australia created a series of resources that highlight this important book, our partners working to protect children from the horrible crime of sexual abuse and exploitation, and how we can all contribute to protecting children.

These resources are available for free download, and include:

  1. What is Child Sexual Exploitation? 
  2. What is Sextortion?
  3. Cross-industry collaboration and ‘following the money’
  4. Law enforcement’s critical role
  5. The Victim-Survivor Voice

Every child deserves to grow up free from abuse and exploitation.
