National Families Week 2022

‘Stronger Families, Stronger Communities’ National Families Week 15-21 May 202

Every year Australians celebrate National Families Week held between 15 – 21 May which coincides with the UN International Day of Families. Families Week is a time to celebrate the most significant unit of society, FAMILY.

Families Week reminds us of the vital role families play in building a stronger community.

National Families Week is a time to celebrate with your family, make contact with your extended family and friends, and share in the enjoyment of family activities within the wider community. It is a time to celebrate the meaning of family and to make the most of family life. 

The aim of National Families Week is to celebrate the vital role that families play in Australian society.

At OzChild, family is incredibly important to us; that’s why we work hard every day to keep families together, to strengthen relationships and build parenting capacity so children and young people have every opportunity to reach their full potential.
