The Centre holds events each year to support the sector, carers, and young people who are in or have been in out-of-home care in Victoria
Outcomes Practice Evidence Network
OPEN Symposium 2021
26 - 28 October
The Centre for Excellence in Child and Family Welfare invites you to consider presenting at the OPEN Symposium 2021.
Over the past year of the global pandemic, services that work with children and families have had to reconfigure and reimagine the way they work, deliver services, implement programs, and engage with clients and communities. This has led to new ways of working and thinking about what matters.
This year’s OPEN Symposium will explore these ideas and innovations that are occurring across the Victorian child and family sector and other allied sectors.
Theme: ‘Working on what matters, sharing what works’
Recognising Our Carers Knowledge & Skills
Resi Rocks is an annual opportunity to bring together residential care workers from across the state as a professional group to promote and cultivate a culture of learning and innovation, sharing knowledge, ideas and practice excellence.
The 2019 Resi Rocks was held in June at the MCG - and it was a fantastic day. Check back in early 2020 to find out about our next event for the residential care workforce.
