We’ve chosen the kite to represent Child Safeguarding Week. Here’s why.

Typically, kites are associated with childhood. Flying a kite creates excitement and a sense of freedom for children. Seeing a kite being flown, adults may fondly reminisce of childhood days in the sun with a breeze blowing and the challenge of getting their kite to go higher. For Child Safeguarding Week, the kite represents the child and having a carefree childhood. One which enables them to aim for the stars, striving to be the best they can be without any detrimental hurdles along the way.

For a kite to fly it requires support to do so – a frame, it’s shape and string. The absence of these will hinder the kite’s ability to fly. The community nurturing a child is represented by the support structure of the kite. To reach their full potential, children need to live a life free from abuse and neglect, to feel loved and supported. This is the vital role their caregiving community play. Without it, they cannot fly.


 “Kites rise highest against the wind, not with it.” Sir Winston Churchill


To successfully lift and gain height, a kite needs to fly against the wind. To give our children a life free of abuse and neglect, we have many challenges to overcome. These are surmountable and the achievement of overcoming them, priceless!

The Child Safeguarding Week kite requires teamwork for it to fly. Together we can make a difference!
