We need your ideas on how to make Australia an even better place for children and young people.

The 2017 Child Aware Approaches Conference, 15-16 May, in Brisbane, will be a vibrant and interactive two-day conversation between policymakers, researchers and service delivery experts from around Australia.

The conference title is ‘Driving national action on child safety and wellbeing’.

There will be loads of opportunities to express yourself on issues that matter to you. We want you to tell us your thoughts about new and improved national policy ideas. We have a great line-up of speakers to stimulate the conversation.

The Child Aware Approaches Conference 2017 builds on four highly successful annual conferences that have advanced the National Framework for Protecting Australia’s Children 2009-2020, Australia’s first-ever COAG-endorsed plan of action to improve child safety and wellbeing.

I truly look forward to seeing and hearing from you next May.
