Our Sponsors & Exhibitors
Territory Families is the Northern Territory’s lead agency that provides a whole-of-life approach to children and family support services through a diverse, yet connected, remit of frontline delivery and advocacy functions.
The agency is responsible for child protection, youth justice, domestic violence, social and gender equity and diversity policy platforms covering youth, multicultural affairs, seniors, women, men and children.
Territory Families is working to significantly improve government policies and programs to deliver quality, integrated family-centred services that improve social and community outcomes across our key responsibility areas of child protection, youth justice and domestic and family violence.
Territory Families works with government agencies, service providers and community stakeholders, to:
- plan, co-design and deliver a mix of strengthened universal, prevention, and crisis response services
- increase investment in early intervention services
- enhance the role of the non-government sector in providing services.
Territory Families’ services reflect the diversity of the Territory, and our approach to service delivery takes into account the challenges created by the Territory’s distinctive geographic, economic and social context.
The Northern Territory is celebrated for its cultural and linguistic diversity. Territorians are more likely to have been born overseas than the typical Australian, and around 25 per cent of the Territory’s population is Aboriginal compared with the national average of three per cent.
As one of a cluster of government agencies, Territory Families also leads the Children and Families Standing Committee. The committee represents the commitment of related Territory Government agencies to jointly address priority social issues in the Northern Territory.
The ACT Government Community Services Directorate has responsibility for a wide range of human services functions in the ACT. These include public and community housing, homelessness services and policy; and services, programs and policy for children, youth and families. The Directorate has whole of government policy responsibility for Multicultural Affairs; community recovery; and the Office for Disability.
The Office of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Affairs is the leader on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Affairs in the ACT Government and coordinates a whole-of-government approach to issues affecting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander residents.
Strong Families is central to the ACT Government’s Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Agreement 2015-2018 with improving outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children and families a priority for the ACT Government. This a joint agreement with the ACT Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Elected Body (ATSIEB) which was established by the ACT Government as a unique forum to represent the interests and aspirations of the local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community.
The Directorate’s Child and Family Centres are a ‘one-stop-shop’ supporting families with young children. Programs such as Growing Healthy Families partner with local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander families in the co-design of a range of tailored and effective programs.
Under the Government’s A Step Up For Our Kids initiative, and in piloting Family Group Conferencing, we are working to engage Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander families to empower them to make decisions for the long term safety and well-being of their children and young people.
The Directorate works in partnership with community and other government providers to deliver services that meet the needs and aspirations of families.
Australian Childhood Foundation
Australian Childhood Foundation is a national notfor-profit organisation that provides trauma informed and culturally strong therapeutic services. We work in partnership with a range of organisations, including Aboriginal community controlled organisations, across Australia to provide training, services and supports to meet the needs of children, families/ carers and communities.
This includes: kinship care support, family violence prevention and support, therapeutic early childhood education, therapeutic foster and residential care, parenting education and support and counselling services for children and young people who have been affected by violence and abuse related trauma.
Connecting Home is a Victorian Aboriginal Agency supporting the Stolen Generations their family and siblings. We offer broad Case Management support, and we are National Disability Insurance Scheme registered. We use an holistic supports framework, and utilise Personal Outcomes Measurement processes to ensure we are tracking the real needs of the Stolen Generations, as well as ensuring that we are making a real difference in the lives of those we support. Connecting Home is based in Collingwood, Melbourne and work across the South Eastern areas of Australia.
The Western Australian Department of Communities provides a range of child safety and family support services to Western Australian individuals, children and their families, from the Kimberley to the Great Southern regions of the State.
The Department recognises that earlier and more intensive engagement and intervention, before problems become entrenched, provides the best opportunity to effectively support and benefit individuals and families.
This type of intervention will also help to reduce the likelihood of more serious intervention with the child protection system. Families who come into contact with the child protection system, almost without exception, share the belief that ‘safe and strong’ families are the best place to grow children who go on to achieve their desired life outcomes.
However, when children do enter out-of-home care, there is a fundamental community responsibility to provide these children with care that supports them to live the best lives possible.
