What we're about

Your Stories. Stronger Together.

CREATE believes meaningful improvements for the 45,400+ young Australians growing up in care can only be made in partnership with children and young people who have experience with the care system. For this reason, Voices in Action brings together young people, carers and professionals to explore key issues identified by children and young people with a care experience, and discuss solutions to improve the care sector. 

Our last conference’s theme, ‘Your Stories. Stronger Together’ showcased the importance of each individual young person’s story and journey in the out-of-home care system and how bringing these voices together and working collectively with all those involved in the care sector can effect positive change. 

Why Voices in Action?

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 

Who is this conference for?


Take a look at our last conference

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.
