Spring is upon us

It’s hard to believe that spring is upon us! For some, spring represents a time for a fresh start. It could be just that, as we welcome Prime Minister Albanese’s announcement yesterday of the date of the Referendum for a Voice to Parliament on Saturday, 14 October.

In April, the FRSA Board endorsed the FRSA Position Statement on a Voice to Parliament. FRSA’s vision for reconciliation is an Australia in which Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children, families and communities are safe, recognised, respected and valued. Below are various resources for you to be ready and informed:

Next week is National Child Protection Week from 3-9 September. It’s a time to reflect on the ongoing message that ‘Every child in every community needs a fair go’. This year’s theme, ‘Where we start matters’ encourages us to look at how we as a service sector offering children and their families support and assistance can make a significant difference to life outcomes.

We aim to highlight the ongoing work and contribution the family and relationships services sector makes to children, families and communities around the country, during our meetings with politicians at SLF in Canberra in less than two weeks. If you haven’t registered, it’s not to late to join us. Access the registration page here.
