The Centre for Excellence in Child and Family Welfare is delighted to invite you to the 2019 OPEN Symposium.

The theme this year is The Voices that Matter.

As we strive to build the evidence base and strengthen practice across child, youth and family services it is vital that the voices that matter- the voices of children, young people and families – are prioritised. This year we encourage you to explore how you are doing this successfully across partnerships and programs, as well as sharing the challenges you have tackled and the learning you have gained.

The programme will focus on the following sub-themes which will showcase evidence-informed practice: 

Children seen and heard

Abstracts that relate to this theme would focus on:

  • the visibility of children in complex systems
  • client participation, client voice.

Collaborations and Partnerships

Abstracts that relate to this theme would focus on:

  • the visibility of children in integrated services
  • how collaborative practice can keep children connected to family and community.

Growing Children Strong
