“We are also pleased to have Federal Government representatives such as Attorney General Robert McClelland and Parliamentary Secretary Julie Collins, who will discuss government initiatives relevant to the sector including the Family Support Program.”

According to organisers, also headlining this year’s conference will be Dr. Fiona Arney, Head of the Child Protection Research Program at the Menzies School of Health Research and Jonathon Nicholas, CEO of the Inspire Foundation. Both of these presenters will discuss the wellbeing of children, with innovative approaches to preventing abuse and achieving and improved quality of living.

This year’s conference has record attendance and will be held at the RACV Royal Pines Resort on the Gold Coast.
