National Families Week 2022

Each year, over a hundred thousand people and hundreds of organisations celebrate National Families Week (15-21 May) – Australia’s annual celebration of families.

The aim of National Families Week is to celebrate the vital role that families play in Australian society. National Families Week is a time to celebrate with your family, make contact with your extended family and friends, and share in the enjoyment of family activities within the wider community. It is a time to celebrate the meaning of family and to make the most of family life.

Online Webinars:

To mark National Families Week 2022, Families Australia will host a compelling online event series showcasing diverse families and community leaders working to support families and help all children to thrive.

Across the week of Monday 16 to Friday 20 May, there will be a 45 minute webinar at 12:30pm (ACST) each day. Hear speakers share insights on their own families, the importance of family, and how we can assist all families to prosper.
