White Balloon Day
White Balloon Day is a national community awareness campaign to prevent the alarmingly high incidence of sexual harm of children in our society. AlburyCity recognises that protecting children is everybody’s responsibility. We have been involved with Bravehearts’ White Balloon Campaign since 2010, helping to spread the message that it is never okay to sexually abuse children and that children have the right to feel safe at all times in our community.
Local support agencies attend the event and provide vital information about available support systems in our local area. Funds raised from the barbecue and selling of balloons goes to Bravehearts, who provide education and training to increase knowledge and understanding of child sexual abuse.
If you would like to get involved in White Balloon Day, please contact Mandy Wilson, Youth Development Officer.
