Putting children first: Child Protection Week 2020

17 September 2020

“Sometimes real superheroes live in the hearts of small children fighting big battles”

As part of Child Protection Week earlier this month, CREATE Foundation produced a video showcasing what it really means to put children first. As one of the care sector organisations partnering with children and young people in Tasmania, Baptcare is proud to feature in this video alongside fellow sector representatives.

Baptcare’s Foster Care Team Lead, Michelle Murray, discusses the importance of listening to the thoughts, feelings, hopes, and dreams of the children we support, and of always making sure they’re at the forefront of the work we do.  Michelle highlights the difference foster carers can make to the lives of young people, by simply being a loving, supporting adult presence.

Baptcare is proud to support National Child Protection Week and this year’s theme of “Putting Children First”. The video put together by CREATE Foundation provides an inspiring insight into the voice of the children we’re privileged to work with. Click here to view the compilation.
