National Forum on Child Protection

June 26 @ 8:00 am - June 28 @ 4:45 pm

Australia unfortunately is a leader in the number of children in the child protection system, as well as out-of-home care. There needs to be a drastic change in order to alter this fact.

Akolade’s National Forum on Child Protection will aim to change this fact by shifting the current approach which is crisis driven, to a positive approach which is based on early intervention.

The forum will bring together delegates from across the country to hear from the distinguished list of speakers stemming from the government, family services and  legal sector etc.

Keynote presentations will take place across the forum bringing saliency to topics such as:

  • Why more families end up in child protection systems than ever before.
  • The power of education – engaging children and youth in school.
  • Changing Australias’s child protection systems and improving family support models.

Attend this forum and learn to:

  • Consult with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and communities to co-design services in order to meet the individual community’s needs.
  • Create better integration and coordination of services.
  • Develop collaborative partnerships with Aboriginal and community organisations to deliver support services for families and children.
  • Develop cultural competency within child protection bodies to better engage with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander families.
