For one week each year, the Family Matters National Week of Action relies on you, our supporters and organisational members of the Family Matters Strategic Alliance, to build public awareness and political commitment for our campaign to make sure all our children grow up strong in family, culture and community.
Our next Family Matters National Week of Action will run from
Sunday 15 to Saturday 21 November 2020
The National Family Matters Leadership Group regretfully postponed our planned National Week of Action that was due to run from 18-24 May. The National Week of Action will now follow the Parliament House launch of The Family Matters Report 2020 on Thursday 12 November and will run from 15-21 November.
Community empowerment and human rights lie at the heart of the Family Matters campaign. Together with community leaders and communities, we will drive local change, inform and empower families and call on Governments to act.

What you can do
As a Family Matters supporter, we are calling on your organisation to further support Family Matters by hosting an event and promoting the National Week of Action via your organisation’s website, social media and other communications channels.
Hold an event in your workplace, engage your supporters, members and staff in discussions about the escalating number of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children being removed from their family, and the power you have to influence change.
