WHY DO WE NEED THE SERVICE?
In 1971 the identified aims were :
- to heighten community awareness of the needs of children;
- to promote knowledge of services which are available to children and their families;
- to stimulate education in quality child care and child rearing;
- to increase communication between children and adults and to provide opportunities for children and adults to share enjoyable experiences.
These are still the aims of the Children’s Week Association . While children continue to be neglected or abused, are subject to care that does not provide opportunity for their full growth and development and are not valued for their full worth then there will be a need for this Association.
