Children’s Week grants - applications and guidelines

Children’s Week is an international event designated by the United Nations, and celebrated annually in the fourth week of October.

2020 Children's Week in Geelong is coming to you online. 

Children’s Week 2020 will take place from Saturday 24 October to Sunday 1 November October 2020.

The Children’s Week theme for 2020 is based on the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child Article 15 ‘'Children have the right to meet with other children and young people and to join groups and organisations, as long as this does not stop other people from enjoying their rights".

Children’s Week in Geelong represents one of the largest community celebrations focusing on young children. The week is designed to celebrate and promote the unique contributions that young children make to our community, and focus community attention on the needs and issues associated with early childhood.
