WHAT WE DO

The Valuing Children Initiative aims to inspire Australians to value all children, understand that a child’s wellbeing is the shared responsibility of the entire community and ensure children are at the forefront of our considerations. The vision of the Valuing Children Initiative is the creation of a society in which all children can flourish, have a safe, caring and supportive childhood and maximise their potential.

A DIFFERENT TYPE OF EASTER 🐣

You’re right, Easter is going to be different this year. The local community Easter egg hunts have been cancelled, picnics have been banned, services are going to be ‘Zoomed’, and family gatherings are discouraged. It’s a weekend that many plan their annual camping trip around and many use the opportunity to travel and visit family. It may seem like an occasion not worth putting the effort in to celebrate, but we believe quite the opposite.

Easter is a story of love and hope – something we all need right now. At a time where fear is in the air, the Easter weekend inspires us to look towards love and life. Our current situation is obligating us to stay home with our families, so why not make the most of the beautiful situation that it is.

Plan it out. There are countless ideas for craft activities, delicious Easter baking recipes and different themes for egg hunts. You can all bundle onto the couch with a warm hot cross bun and watch ‘Peter Rabbit’ or ‘Hop’. What would have been a camping trip 5 hours away can instead be a camping trip 5 metres away in your backyard. You can go for nature walks, bike rides, and scavenger hunts. You can FaceTime all the family members you’re missing and even ‘Zoom’ an Easter brunch. The possibilities are endless and whilst some may worry that it might be a peculiar celebration, it is bound to be an Easter that our children will always remember.

We can take this opportunity to be grateful that we are safe and that we have each other. It is important to take this time to focus on our wellbeing and care for ourselves. Reach out to those you love, spread some kindness, make someone smile and bring a bit of hope during this uncertain time.

Have a wonderful Easter 🧡🐰
