Plenary 6:
Bringing the village together to support families

Daniella Park hosts plenary session six where we focus on the importance of bringing the village together to support families and carers. In this session we will hear from West Australian Minister for Child Protection, the Hon Simone McGurk about the whole-of-government approach in that state, and the Hon. Roger Jaensch MP, Tasmanian Minister for Education, Children and Youth provides an update. Intercountry adoptee Zufi Emerson speaks on the importance of remaining connected to her heritage, and we hear a little about how the My Forever Family NSW supports carers and families in that state.
