The National Coalition on Child Safety and Wellbeing (National Coalition) was established in 2007.
The National Coalition played a leading role in advocating for, negotiating, and now helps to implement, the National Framework for Protecting Australia’s Children 2009-2020. The National Coalition comprises more than 170 non-government community organisations that provide services to children, young people and families on the ground across Australia, as well as many key advocates and researchers in the areas of child protection and children’s wellbeing. The larger or peak organisations in the National Coalition, in turn, represent collectively many hundreds of not-for-profit community and welfare organisations around Australia.
At present, work is underway across the National Coalition to strengthen local community awareness and engagement on protecting children under the Child Aware Local Initiative.
