It’s time to start planning your National Families Week event to celebrate the role families play in our local communities. National Families Week will be held from 15 May, the United Nations International Day of Families, to 21 May 2018.
‘Stronger Families, Stronger Communities’ has been embraced as an enduring theme for National Families Week as it encapsulates the important role families play as the central building blocks of our communities. Community wellbeing is enhanced by family wellbeing.
Local Government areas are encouraged to celebrate National Families Week by planning and holding a National Families Week event – it can be a morning tea, a conference or seminar on matters of interest in your community, a reading session in the library or something else that is suitable for your area!
