The National Child Protection Week, set to take place from September 5 to 11, will shed light on recognising the efforts, programs, services and achievements of individuals and organisations.
The Ipswich Region Child Protection Week Awards expects to highlight the importance of child protection in the community by raising awareness. The prize has been established by the Ipswich District Child Protection Week Committee.
Representants of Queensland Police Service, Department of Communities, Child Safety and Disability Services, Ipswich Community Youth Service and Somerset Regional Council comprise the committee.
“Many of you are already playing your part every day –as individuals, community members, volunteers and workers– to help create these great support networks for children,” the organisation says.
“This is your opportunity to acknowledge those individuals, community members, volunteers and workers.”
The 10th annual Ipswich and West Moreton Region Child Protection Week Awards is back after one year off due to COVID-19 impacts. Interested in submitting a nomination, need to access the official website’s event.
Nominations close at 5 pm on Thursday, August 12. The winners will be announced at the Ipswich and West Moreton Region Child Protection Week Gala Dinner and Awards Presentation on Friday, September 10, at the Ipswich Turf Club.
