ACWA National Conference 5th–7th June 2024, ICC Sydney

We are pleased to announce that the ACWA Conference is returning in June 2024 and will be held at ICC, Sydney.

ACWA’s national conference, which is held every two years, marks a significant coming together of child and family welfare experts, caseworkers, sector leaders and child protection advocates to examine policies and practices that are making a difference in the lives of vulnerable children and families, and to identify ways we can do better.

Our conference program incorporates a stimulating mix of presentations, panel discussions and masterclasses, supported by a dynamic line up of international and local speakers. There are plenty of social highlights as well, providing delegates valuable opportunities to network, renew connections and celebrate the work of our sector.
