  • Advocacy Masterclass led by Professor Cindy Blackstock (26 June), and
  • QATSICPP Members’ Conference (27 & 28 June).

DO NOT MISS OUT – REGISTER NOW AT THE DISCOUNTED EARLY BIRD RATE! Click HERE to register!

If you wish to also attend either the second or third of the BIG WEEK events- the Professor Cindy Blackstock Masterclass on 26th June and/or the QATSICPP Members’ Conference on the 27th and 28th June, click here.

SHAME FILE – shape up Queensland!

Thank you for the many submissions of abstracts for the Conference. PeakCare is loath to admit it, but Queensland is currently being outshone by some other States including, can you believe it, Western Australia! Shame! Visit the website to submit an abstract and your suggestions for the Conference Program by no later than COB Monday, 29th April.

Sponsorship opportunities now open

Encourage your organisation to join Child Wise, Churches of Christ Care, Foundations Care, Life Without Barriers, The Benevolent Society, and YCSS Child, Youth and Family Intervention Service in becoming a sponsor of this exciting event.
