19 and 20 February 2019 - Port Macquarie.


Catholic Social Services Australia and St Agnes' Parish warmly invite you to attend the 
2019 Catholic Social Services Australia National Conference.

Meeting The Unmet Need 

The Conference is inspired by the words of Mary MacKillop "do all that you can with the means at your disposal, and calmly leave the rest to God."

Participants will be encouraged to ask how they can better work across the social services, health and education service sectors to create real change for local communities.

The Conference is unique in that participants will hear from leaders who have successfully introduced integrated service models. Speakers will examine the role of Parishes, Government and local faith-based service providers in providing wrap around community support services.  A panel session concludes day one providing an opportunity for participants to directly engage with change makers.

Participants will also be invited to join targeted small group workshops that allow them to dig deeper and think about the options for cross sector service delivery in their region or program area.

 The Conference will provide insight and inspiration to emerging leaders by providing the opportunity for you to speak directly with experienced program leaders on the possibilities offered with creative service integration models. 

The opportunity for senior leaders to come together and discuss how the sector, and the Church, can best adapt to the changing policy environment in the lead up to the next Federal election should not be missed.

The program outline is available here.
