CHILD AWARE APPROACHES CONFERENCE
Sharing, Building and Recognising Child Aware Innovation
Building on the highly acclaimed, inaugural Child Aware Approaches Conference, Families Australia hosted the 2014 Child Aware Approaches Conference with the support of the Australian Government Department of Social Services.
The two-day conference was an opportunity to showcase and disseminate knowledge about current research and innovative practices with the intention of replicating success, building greater capacity and recognising the uptake of Child Aware Approaches in the delivery of services. The conference contributed to the second three year action plan 2012-2015 under the National Framework for Protecting Australia's Children 2009-2020, the National Mental Health Reform and the National Plan to Reduce Violence against Women and their Children 2010-2022.
Delegates from government, non-government and research sectors made valuable contributions to the national campaign to make the wellbeing and safety of Australia's children everyone's business and shared responsibility.
The 2015 Conference will be held at the Melbourne Exhibition Centre on Thursday 14 May and Friday 15 May.
