Welcome to ACWA 18

On behalf of the ACWA 2018 Conference Organising Committee, I would like to invite you to attend the Association of Children’s Welfare Agencies Conference (ACWA 2018). This Conference is widely regarded as the premier child and family welfare professional event held in Australia.

ACWA 2018 will be held at the International Convention Centre Sydney, located in Darling Harbour, from 20 – 22 August 2018. In addition to providing professional opportunities for input and debate for practitioners, policy makers, researchers and academics, the Conference will provide delegates with an opportunity to renew connections and acquaintances, and of course meet new colleagues from within the industry.

The program will highlight our continuing endeavours of working with community organisations in providing positive outcomes for vulnerable children, young people and their families.

We look forward to seeing you at ACWA 2018.
