Join us for #THRIVE2021 Virtual National Permanency Conference as we bring together speakers and delegates from Australia and abroad and keeping a spotlight shining on permanency and issues affecting young people in care so that they can thrive in their childhoods and into their futures.

Every aspect of our National Permanency Conference will focus on the eight recommendations made to government as a result of #THRIVE2020

World renowned experts in trauma are joining our line-up of national presenters, plus we will hear updates from politicians and government on progress; and provide interactive opportunities for delegates to provide ideas and feedback on changes needed in each state and territory and Australia-wide.
