Nominations are now open for the 2021 Victorian Protecting Children Awards. The Victorian Protecting Children Awards are a great opportunity to nominate individuals, teams or carers who work tirelessly to protect children, young people and families that experience vulnerability.
Nominations can be made across 14 award categories, including ones that recognise achievements in the child and family services sector and in child protection.
An additional category has also been introduced to recognise an individual, team or group that goes above and beyond the expectations of their role to assist young people experiencing vulnerability gain access to the support they need. This may be for important life skills, independent living, employment pathways, education-based support, culturally appropriate care, mental health and substance abuse.
Anyone in the child and family services sector is eligible to receive this award.
Foster and kinship carers, academics, policy, program, supervisory and direct service staff from community, government or academic organisations are encouraged to nominate anyone that they believe go above and beyond to ensure the wellbeing of children and young people.
Anyone can nominate an individual or team either by completing a written nomination form or submitting a short video (maximum 3 minutes).
Nominations close Monday 31 May 2021.
