Children's week

Children’s Week is an annual event celebrated in Australia held around the fourth Wednesday in October. In 1996 it was decided to adopt a permanent theme: “A Caring World Shares” as a reflection of Children’s Week aims while at the same time acknowledging the designated year on national posters and other printed materials.

A diverse range of events and activities are organised at National, State and Local levels. These focus the attention of the wider community on children, their needs and achievements.

Children’s Week celebrates the right of children to enjoy childhood. It is also a time for children to demonstrate their talents, skills and abilities.



We offer a wide range of services to support children, young people, and their families. Our core expertise is in supporting individuals and families through difficult life events, such as separation and divorce, experiences of family violence, mental or emotional health difficulties or any relationship issue that is causing stress or concern.

Our services for children, young people and families include: Family Therapy, Family Dispute Resolution (including Child-Inclusive Family Dispute Resolution) and Relationship education programs for children, mothers, fathers and parents.

Relationships Australia NSW’s supported playgroup provides parents with an opportunity to meet other families in similar situations, learn about parenting topics such as discipline, child development and helping children manage emotions.

We do not provide crisis service. If you need urgent help, please contact Kids Helpline.
