You are invited to attend the Queensland Kinship Care Forum 2020 on Wednesday, 26th February

Building on the successful 2019 Kinship Care Forum hosted by PeakCare, a follow up forum is being organised for Wednesday, 26th February in Brisbane. The Kinship Care Forum is aimed at progressing the national agenda to raise awareness about the lack of recognition and support for extended family members caring for children, and find a way forward to influence national policy in recognising the rights and unique support needs of these children and their kinship carers. Megan Mitchell, the National Children’s Commissioner will be in attendance, and the research about young kinship carers attendees heard about at the first forum is now finalised in a report which will be launched on the day. A range of other speakers involved in kinship care work and research will also be attending. Find out more and register.
