Families Australia will host the 6th Child Aware (CA2019) conference 16-17 May 2019 in Brisbane. The Child Aware Conference is the only national opportunity to bring together policy, practice and research across all levels of government and a diversity of sectors and disciplines to improve the delivery of services to children, young people and their families. Entitled Children Young People Families | our concern | our responsibility | our future, the 6th conference will stimulate discussion on how to make Australia an even better place for children and young people now and into the future. The participation of young people will be a feature of this conference.
Families Australia established a Young People’s Reference Group (YPRG) in November 2018, to ensure the voices of a diverse range of young people are included in the planning and delivery of key elements of CA2019. ACU student participants will join the YPRG and contribute to one of two key conference initiatives detailed below:
Students will participate in YPRG teleconferences, email participation and post-conference briefing, with the option to attend the Conference (students may select one or two-day registration).
27th February – 30th June 2019
Conference: 16th – 17th May 2019
Project work will be conducted remotely, with Families Australia offices based in Canberra. There is an option for students to be mentored by a member of the peer reference group. More information will be provided about this opportunity through Families Australia.
Conference: Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre, South Brisbane – Grey Street entrance
