BLOWN AWAY…

We have been totally blown away by the number of abstracts and offers received to present at the National Child Protection Conference to be co-hosted by the Child and Family Welfare Association of Australia (CAFWAA), Queensland Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Child Protection Peak (QATSICPP) and PeakCare at Rydges, South Bank, South Brisbane on the 24th and 25th June – enough to run three 2-day conferences! We are now working very hard to create a program that will allow as many people as possible to contribute to this exciting event.

Attend the conference and you will have access to an array of international and local speakers representing most States and Territories, academics from multiple universities, politicians, researchers, administrators and practitioners from  government and non-government community-controlled and mainstream organisations, young people and parents with a lived experience of the child protection system plus some surprises that we have in store. As with most good conferences, you can expect to be faced with some difficult choices about which presentations or panel discussions you attend.

Details of the program will commence being released next week. In the meantime, make sure you register quickly. The early bird rate concludes at cob today – Friday 3rd May – as does the competition to win one of three free tickets (extended from the original closing date of 29th April).

The National Child Protection Conference is one of three events being held during Queensland’s BIG WEEK. For more information about the Professor Cindy Blackstock Masterclass Workshop being hosted by QATSICPP on 26th June and the QATSICPP Members’ Conference on 27th and 28th June, click here. Attend all three events and make it a very BIG WEEK!
