QATSICPP Members Conference 2018 Post Conference Report

QATSICPP presents to you our QATSICPP Members Conference 2018 Post Conference Report.

As you would be aware, QATSICPP hosted its Members’ Conference at the Pullman International Hotel, Cairns from 6-8 March 2018. The conference, with much success, sought to showcase the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Community Controlled Child Protection Sector (Sector), based on previous feedback from the QATSICPP Members’ Conference in September 2016.

Based on feedback from the QATSICPP Members’ Conference in September 2016, the 2018 QATSICPP Members’ Conference showcased the Sector’s capacity in demonstrating practice excellence and good governance from a service point-of-view. Additionally, QATSICPP provided a platform for external providers to present on topics that are pivotal in the policy reform agenda stemming from the Carmody Report of 2014. The external presentations were conducted by Professor Roianne West (Post Graduate Certificate) and Professor Clare Tilbury (Centre of Excellence). Further to this, the QATSICPP Aboriginal Kinship Position Paper, QATSICPP Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Community Controlled Definition and Standards were [both] launched on Wednesday 7 March 2018, with the inclusion of the QLD Family Matters update provided.
