We’re excited to announce that the National Permanency Conference is back online this year, bigger and better than ever.

This year the National #THRIVE2022 Conference will include two days on Permanency (25 and 26 October), with the addition of a day to focus on trauma-informed Education on 27 October.

We will hear from international and local experts, the sector and the community, including those with lived experience. We will receive updates from governments around the country on progress on their commitment to permanency and better outcomes for children with an experience in government care.

There will also be panel Q&A sessions and national roundtables allowing you the opportunity to participate in sector discussions and pave the way for future discourse on the subject.

Register for the event and join us online in connecting with national guests and leaders in child welfare and ensure that your voice is at the table!
