Let’s talk about the dollars: Are we being clever in how we invest in keeping children safe and well?

September 7, 2023 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm

This webinar is part of the National Child Protection Week 2023 Webinar Series, hosted by NAPCAN.

There are significant costs associated with child abuse and neglect.

In this webinar we will speak with key thinkers who help unpack the myths around the economic and structural costs associated with child abuse.

We know there are deeply harmful personal and social costs to experiencing abuse, but what about the significant cost of child protection and related social services? Is this spending effective in keeping children safe and well?

Or can we – should we – restructure our investment to enable better outcomes for children and their families?
