NSW Aboriginal Child & Family Conference 2019

  • 19–21 Nov 2019
  • Coffs Harbour NSW


The biennial NSW Aboriginal Child & Family Conference is a key event for those working with Aboriginal children and families in NSW. Our conference theme this year will be “Strong communities Strong kids”. We will put the focus firmly on strategies for involving Aboriginal youth, families and communities in developing services and policies that lead to system change. The conference will be held from 19 to 21 November 2019 at the picturesque Opal Cove Resort, Coffs Harbour.

Hosted by AbSec, the sector peak body, the conference provides participants an opportunity to strengthen their skills and knowledge in supporting Aboriginal children, young people and families. It’s also an important time to collectively reset our compass on Aboriginal kids and what’s needed to keep them safe and healthy.

Our 2019 conference aims to highlight successful strategies for developing well-integrated, holistic and culturally responsive service systems. We look forward to sharing best practices, celebrating our achievements and setting future directions to deliver better outcomes for Aboriginal children, young people, families and communities.
