CREATE believes meaningful improvements for the 44,000 young Australians growing up in care can only be made in partnership with children and young people who have experience with the care system. We bring together young people, carers and professionals to collaborate and provide an in-depth exploration of key issues identified by children and young people with a care experience to discuss solutions to improve the care sector.
This year’s theme, ‘Your Stories. Stronger Together’ will showcase the importance of each individual young person’s story and journey in the out of home care sector and how bringing these voices together and working collectively with all those involved in the care sector, we can effect positive change. The Voices in Action conference is a unique opportunity to elevate the voices of children and young people – because without the insight of these young leaders our out-of-home care system in Australia will not be effective.
Here’s what to expect:
PRESENTATIONS from young leaders and industry acclaimed motivational speakers
FUN WORKSHOPS & ACTIVITIES for young people
INTERACTIVE WORKSHOPS focused on apply the wisdom of lived experience to key issues
CONNECTION AND COLLABORATION with young people with care experience, carers, and key decision makers to tackle new and emerging issues
In 2022 we took the fifth international conference, to a totally new format as a fully virtual conference across four days from 26 – 29 April 2022.
With the world facing so many new unexpected challenges, the conference was a fantastic opportunity to reflect on how resilient, resourceful and remarkable young people with a care experience are. CREATE plays a pivotal role in the out-of-home care sector and are proud of the positive impact our work has on the children and young people that we serve.
The conference featured a daily keynote address from inspirational thought leaders in the care system, followed by a series of short presentations and interactive sessions that focused on key issues facing our sector.
