Conference Program

The National Permanency Conference 2019 will focus on the importance of maintaining strong connections with family, origin and culture for children in the context of permanency.

Three years since the commitment of the Community Services Ministers to prioritising permanency for children in out-of-home care within their jurisdictions, we invite state and territory governments to participate in this critical conversation. We’re also inviting those of you in the sector, who have an opportunity to contribute to positive change for children across Australia.

Hear from international and local speakers, as well as federal and state governments on the progress of their commitment to permanency for children. Participate in sector discussion and feedback sessions, and hear the latest in global best practice.
