Today marks the beginning of National Families Week 2024, a yearly initiative from Families Australia that the Department of Social Services is proud to support.

This year’s theme is ‘Celebrating Family Diversity & Connections’. The theme recognises that every family is unique and celebrates the diversity within our families and communities.

Families Australia have released their tips on how you can get involved and celebrate family diversity and connections, including:

  • creating time to play, and have fun with your family
  • using technology to connect with each other
  • celebrating your family’s achievements, big or small
  • regularly checking in with eachother
  • asking others for support with challenges.

For more ideas, take a look at the full list available on the National Families Week website.
