Celebrating Children’s Week at UCW
This coming week UCW is celebrating Children’s Week and shining a light on the services that we provide to children in WA.
Children’s Week is an annual event celebrated in Australia with the 2018 theme being “Children’s views and opinions are respected”. This year’s activity runs from 19 October – 28 October.
Children’s Week celebrates the right of children to enjoy childhood. It is also a time for children to demonstrate their talents, skills and abilities.
UnitingCare West is committed to supporting and empowering children in our community, offering a broad suite of services to assist children at risk. Central to our services is the belief that all children have the right to be supported in a nurturing environment where they feel safe, valued and heard.
Our child support services cover the four key areas of: out of home accommodation, homelessness, parenting and child sexual abuse. You can find out more about these programs here.
With other activities taking place across our services throughout the week, look out for more news.
