CREATE Foundation is the national consumer body representing the voices of children and young people with an out-of-home care experience.  CREATE's fourth national conference Voices in Action: Nothing About Us, Without Us will be held at the Melbourne Zoo from the 14th-16th November 2019 .

CREATE celebrates its 20th year in 2019 by inviting you to participate in a truly inspiring event  where young people, carers, professionals and sector leaders can come together to work on making the changes needed in the out-of-home care system for children and  young people.

The 2019 VIA Conference will provide an in-depth exploration of three key issues identified by children and young people with a care experience as fundamental to improving the out-of-home care system. 

This conference is for:

  • Young people with a care experience between 12 and 25 years of age who want to meet others with similar life experience in a fun environment and share their wisdom about being in care.
  • Carers and professionals seeking the views from the care sector’s young leaders about what works and what doesn’t.
  • Sector leaders looking for a grassroots approach to tackling old problems with fresh perspective

The conference format will feature a daily keynote address from inspirational thought leaders in the care system, followed by a series of interactive, workshop style sessions focused on applying the insights of young people, carers and professionals to some of the key issues facing our sector.
