NPC 2018 NPC 2017

The National Permanency Conference will bring together politicians and policy makers, social welfare professionals, research and practice experts to focus on the importance of children having a safe, nurturing and permanent home, and providing supports for children to recover from trauma and thrive into their adulthood.

Community Services representatives will give updates on progress and plans for their state or territory, one year since their national commitment to permanency.

International and national speakers will provide insights into:

  • permanency and adoption practices globally;
  • evidence-based interventions to support birth families; and
  • trauma informed practices and supports for adoptive families.
