National Families Week (15-21 May 2013)

National Families Week is a time to celebrate with your immediate family, make contact with your extended family and friends and share in the enjoyment of family activities within the wider community. It is a time to celebrate the meaning of family and to make the most of family time.

National Families Week is timed to coincide with the United Nations International Day of Families on 15 May.  This day is observed by the United Nations to mark the importance that the international community place on families as the most fundamental units of society, as well as to show concern about their situation in many parts of the world.
