World Children’s Day

Today the 20th November marks International Children’s Day.  On this day in 1959 the Declaration of the Rights of the Child was adopted and in 1989 the UN General Assembly adopted the Convention on the Rights of the Child.  Nowhere is this statement more important than when children are living in foster care.

Today we don’t just celebrate children for who they are, we bring awareness to children around the globe who have experienced violence, abuse or discrimination by advocating for them and promoting and improving child welfare.

Key Assets have developed a strong reputation as a leader in the child and family welfare sector. As a not for profit we are passionate about delivering outstanding services that enable children and families to achieve their potential. Our purpose is to achieve positive and lasting outcomes for children, families and communities. We can draw on our group’s wealth of knowledge, international safeguarding and child protection practice, therapeutic models of intervention, academic research and qualitative programs to continually improve care options for vulnerable children and their families.

When we meet and talk with carers across Australia, and the other jurisdictions where Key Assets operates, we hear such powerful stories that inspire people to become carers. We are forever grateful for the positive impact that our carers have on the lives of some of the most vulnerable people in our community. The carer journey is not always easy and we understand the challenges faced by foster and kinship carers in shaping a
better future for children and young people.
