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

ACWA’s international conference, is a significant coming together of advocates, practitioners, policy and researchers and sector leaders in child and family fields.  It covers family support and intervention, family preservation, domestic violence and child protection, out of home care and residential care.  Workers from all over Australia will present their work, hear new research and interventions, and 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.

The conference will have a number of streams – including child protection and domestic violence, keeping families together and reunification, residential care, and hearing from First Nations experiences, services, and initiatives.

The 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.

Experience Everything Sydney has to Offer

Sydney, Australia’s gateway city and the capital of New South Wales is built around one of the largest, most beautiful harbours in the world and along miles of golden surfing beaches which stretch north and south of the city on the shore of the Pacific Ocean. The beaches and harbour play a major role in the leisure and sporting lives of Sydneysiders – yachting, surfing, sailboarding, swimming, boating, fishing and water skiing are all popular activities.

During the ACWA Conference, Sydney will also become the city of light with the Vivid festival. Vivid Sydney is an annual celebration of creativity, innovation and technology, which transforms Sydney for 23 days and nights.
