National Families Week

Celebrate families!

National Families Week is held every year between 15 and 21 May and the 2021 theme is 'Stronger Families, Stronger Communities.' This theme continues to highlight the important role families play as the central building block of our communities and deliver the message that community wellbeing is enhanced by family wellbeing.

This year Relationships Australia WA will be sharing some daily tip sheets to help build stronger families together.  We’ll also be sharing some information about our family and parenting services available.

National Families Week aims to celebrate the vital role that families play in Australian society. This 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 and to reflect on the critical role that families play in teaching, supporting and nurturing children especially as they grow.

National Families Week coincides with the United Nations International Day of Families on 15 May.  This day is observed by the United Nations to mark the importance that the international community places on families as the most fundamental units of society, as well as to show concern about their situation in many parts of the world.
