Families Australia will be hosting an online Policy Forum Supporting Children and Young People with Disability in Challenging times on Thursday 15 June 2022 from 11:00am – 13:30pm (AEDT).

 

The upcoming policy forum aims to discuss ways of supporting children and young people with disability through a variety of challenging contexts such as family violence, the COVID pandemic and the challenges for families navigating systems such the NDIS. Children and young people with disability and their parents/carers, are an identified priority group of Safe and Supported: The National Framework for Protecting Australia’s Children 2021-2031.

 

Keynote speaker:

 

  • Professor Sally Robinson (Flinders University).

 

We will then explore case studies from:

 

  • Plumtree (Sylvana Mahmic).
  • Further details on case studies to follow.

 

The policy forum will conclude with a discussion co-facilitated by Professor Sally Robinson and Families Australia CEO, Jamie Crosby.

 

We encourage the participation of workers from Aboriginal controlled organisations, child protection and welfare organisations, disability and carers organisations, as well as those engaged with policy, advocacy and research on issues affecting children, youth and families.
