NAPCAN National Child Protection Week

National Child Protection Week
5  September - 12 September

This special edition of e-wise takes a focus on children in recognition of NAPCAN National Child Protection Week

The NAPCAN survey on views on Child Abuse in Australia conducted last year found that despite 92% of people thinking that Child Abuse is a serious problem in Australia, almost half would take no action when presented with a clear case of child abuse. 

Worryingly, 42% of respondents stated that they would not take action because 'it was not their business'.

Grooming and sexual misconduct

Definitions and changes to sexual misconduct

The NSW Ombudsman has just released Practice Update 2/2010 titled "Reportable Conduct: Sexual offences and sexual misconduct". The practice update details changes to the definition of sexual misconduct to include behaviour previously defined as 'grooming'. In this article Kylie Starling discusses the changes, their meaning and how they will help protect children.

Children Overseas

Children at risk in Pakistan

On 28 August, a woman holding her baby sits on the back of a motorbike as it crosses a flooded road in Baseera, a village in Punjab Province. Others wade through the water, returning to their homes as the flood waters recede. 

By 30 August 2010 in Pakistan, the countrys worst flooding in living memory had affected over 17 million people, at least 8.6 million of them children. 

Help UNICEF bring relief to the millions of children affected by the disaster.
