THRIVE 2024 National Permanency Summit

The child protection system is no longer at crisis point. We are now seeing unsustainable, catastrophic outcomes. Over 45,000 of our children and young people are in government care, unable to return home. Ten percent of these kids – nearly 4,500 – aren’t living in home-based care and are instead in motels and residential group settings, being looked after by workers on shift. Children don’t belong in institutions – they need to grow up in a family home.

The nation is at a tipping point and now, more than ever, we need to come together with a united, whole of country approach to find solutions.

Join us for THRIVE 2024 National Permanency Summit: A Home & Healing for Safe & Supported Kids in Sydney on 7 & 8 November where we bring government, the sector, and those with lived experience together with global leaders in the child welfare and trauma space, to discuss what can be done to support system reform in child-centred timeframes and immediately change the trajectory for our most vulnerable youth.
