The nationwide day of action will be held on September 9 and builds upon White Balloon Day, which is Australia's largest and longest-running child protection campaign.

It comes as figures show 1 in 5 children experience sexual abuse or exploitation, with concerns that risk has only heightened through the pandemic and various lockdowns.

Bravehearts CEO, Alison Geale, says funds raised through the campaign will help support survivors and prevention efforts.
