The International Day of Families is an annual day reflecting the importance of families, providing an opportunity to promote awareness of issues relating to families as well as to promote appropriate action.

The day is commemorated to highlight the important affairs central to the welfare of families, such as health, education, gender equality, rights for children, and social inclusion among others.


Organisations planning to hold an event for National Families Week need to register in order to receive promotional products (posters, coloured pencils, stickers, bookmarks, notepads and painting sheets).
