National Kinship, Permanent & Foster Care Conference 2024

Carer Kafe is delighted to be supporting Victorian Home-Based Carers to attend the highly anticipated National Kinship, Permanent & Foster Care Conference in Melbourne from Friday 9 August - Sunday 11 August 2024. 

The National Conference is a gathering of passionate caregivers from across the country, joining to share knowledge, exchange ideas, and learn from experts in the field. It serves as a platform for personal and professional growth, as well as an invaluable opportunity to connect with fellow carers who share your dedication and commitment. 

Carers who are selected will have their Conference registration fees paid by Carer Kafe. In addition, carers who live two or more hours drive from the venue are also eligible to apply for three-nights accommodation to stay at a four-star hotel in close proximity (approximately 10 minutes walk) checking in on Thursday 8 August and checking out Sunday 11 August.
