Carers Australia will host the 7th International Carers Conference in Adelaide, South Australia, from 4-6 October 2017.
The conference aims to re-imagine caring into the future, providing a catalyst for innovation and collaboration; sharing improvements in the way we support unpaid carers, care-recipients, their families, networks and communities.
In addition to recognising and learning from past achievements, this conference will focus on the future, the challenges and opportunities ahead, and showcase innovation in policy and practice.
The 7th International Carers Conference will bring together key stakeholders across a broad range of community and business sectors: policy-makers, community leaders, business leaders, researchers, grassroots advocates, practitioners, consumers and carers.
Delegates will come from across Australia, across the Asia Pacific region and across the globe, along with national and international high-profile speakers; to engage in a meeting of minds.
CARING INTO THE FUTURE: THE NEW WORLD?
The International Carers Conference theme – Caring into the Future: the new world? – will focus on innovation, partnerships, future challenges and new opportunities.
A stimulating program is being developed with challenging debates, thought-provoking presentations, interactive workshops and new exhibition zones to inspire, inform and drive forward sector collaboration.
