Description

The Carers NSW 2018 Biennial Conference Caring: Yesterday, Today, Tomorrow will be held on Thursday 11 and Friday 12 October 2018 at the Novotel Sydney Olympic Park. The conference is proudly funded by the NSW Government.

The Carers NSW 2018 Biennial Conference brings together professionals from a broad range of areas including:

  • employment
  • education
  • research
  • policy
  • corporate and business

Conference Focus

The focus of the conference for 2018 is how we future proof carer support.

The social welfare landscape has been one of significant reform over the last few years. Continued change is expected and presents the need to think differently about the delivery and design of carer services and supports in this rapidly changing environment. The challenge for us in policy development, governance and service provision is in developing and translating innovative ideas and strategies for carer support that continue to recognise and retain the value of carers and promotes their inclusion and connection to services and to each other.

Themes

The conference will focus on three core themes:

  • Connectivity: developing and utilising technology and innovative practice in connecting carers to services and supports, information and importantly to each other

  • Inclusion: enhancing inclusion and promotion of choice and participation in education, employment, community and social activities

  • Resilience: recognising and building the capabilities of carers and their networks to navigate complex service systems, and manage the financial and emotional challenges of caring.
