Stronger Families, Stronger Communities

National Families Week is a time to celebrate with family, make contact with extended family and friends, and share in the enjoyment of family activities within the wider community. It is a time to celebrate the meaning of family and to make the most of family life.

This year’s theme highlights the important role families play as the central building block of our communities and that community wellbeing is enhanced by family wellbeing. Let’s take the time to reflect on the critical role that families play in teaching, supporting and nurturing children especially as they grow.
