Bravehearts’ White Balloon Day is an annual day that raises awareness about protecting kids from child sexual assault.
Now in its 22nd year, White Balloon Day has helped educate the community about preventing this crime, whilst also helping to raise funds for Bravehearts’ essential counselling and education programs.
YOU can help PROTECT KIDS by getting involved in White Balloon Day this year, and adding your voice to the thousands of people who will be BREAKING THE SILENCE on child sexual assault on Friday September 7, 2018.
“As a long term supporter of Bravehearts, can I ask your support for White Balloon Day? An individuals’ safety underpins their entire quality of life and is a right not an option. There is still much to do in that regard and Bravehearts is at the forefront. Bravehearts needs your assistance to continue their important and valuable work.”

“The Australian Federal Police (AFP) is a supporter of White Balloon Day which raises awareness to support Australian children affected by sexual assault. The AFP plays a significant role in child protection. In 2016-17, the AFP received more than 10,000 reports of child exploitation material through its Child Protection Assessment Centre. Prevention and deterrence initiatives are key strategies used to prevent the exploitation of children, and remove children from harm. We all have a part to play in preventing child abuse and neglect, but we can’t do it on our own – we need your help. Your help can be as simple as participating in White Balloon Day.”
