Australian communities are celebrating the importance of families in locally organised events around the country to mark National Families Week, 15 to 21 May 2018.
Today on United Nations International Day of Families Dave talks with Brett Ryan from Focus on the family.
‘Families are society’s most important building block; whatever form families take all deserve respect, support and encouragement. ‘Stronger families mean stronger, more resilient communities.’
The aim of National Families Week 2018 is to celebrate the vital role that families play in Australian society. The theme is ‘Stronger families, stronger communities‘.
National Families Week is supported and promoted by Ambassadors, prominent Australians who are champions for families and family wellbeing.
National Families Week coincides with the United Nations International Day of Families on 15 May, the day observed by the United Nations to mark the importance placed on families as the most fundamental units of society, and to show the international community’s concern for family issues in many parts of the world.
