About the Conference

This conference will bring together the family and community services and the government sector to discuss the impact of family and domestic violence, and how we as a community can provide greater support to children and young people.

It will feature presentations from expert practitioners, researchers and policymakers across a range of disciplines including but not limited to family services, alcohol and other drug services, mental health, Aboriginal support services, legal services and judiciary, youth services, education and government services to discuss solutions-focussed support and how together we can drive conversations and change to improve the lives of children and young people who are most at risk of family and domestic violence.
