A conference not to be missed by AbSec members, Aboriginal Community Controlled Organisations (ACCOs), Out-of-Home Care Services Providers, Government and Non-Government Organisations, Decision Makers and Funders.

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 'Healing our Sector'.

While we'll discuss strategies for involving Aboriginal youth, families and communities in developing services and systemic change; we'll also be using the conference to perform an industry health check, giving our sector a chance to be heard and discuss methods of self-care and improvement during a time of unprecedented change, upheaval and environmental challenges.

This year's conference aims to also share best practices, celebrate our achievements and set future directions for delivering better outcomes for Aboriginal children and young people and their families and communities.

It is also an opportunity to share the latest research developments in developing Aboriginal-led and culturally informed evidence based frameworks and models, and showcase strategies for involving Aboriginal youth, families and communities in developing services and policies that lead to system change.
