Child Aware

Families Australia’s Child Aware Conferences showcase innovative ways to respond early to the needs of children and families.

The conferences bring together a broad range of practitioners, researchers, and policy-makers interested in developing strategies and forging new links to develop deeper understandings of approaches needed to make the safety and wellbeing of Australia’s children a shared community responsibility.

The next Child Aware Conference will be hosted in Brisbane, 16-17 May 2019.
