2016 Child Aware Approaches Conference registration now open

Registration is now open for the 2016 Child Aware Approaches Conference (CAA 2016).

Families Australia members receive discounted rates including early bird. Competitive early bird rates are available for non-members for a limited time as well as a highly discounted rate for three delegate groups and students. Complimentary registrations will be available for a number of delegates from rural and remote areas (based on application).

The two day conference aims to advance the National Framework for Protecting Australia’s Children 2009 – 2020, the National Plan to Reduce Violence against Women and their Children 2010 – 2022, and the wellbeing of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. The conference is supported by the Australian Government Department of Social Services.

CAA 2016 provides an exciting opportunity to advance thinking, showcase promising and innovative practice, encourage policy discourse and analysis and help to chart directions in three key areas:

  1. Advancing children’s development and wellbeing in the first 1000 days
  2. Supporting young people in out-of-home care to flourish in adulthood.
  3. Building child safe organisations and environments.

The 2016 Child Aware Approaches Conference will be held at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre, Monday 23 – Tuesday 24 May 2016.
