The ACOSS National Conference is the meeting place of Australia’s community sector. In 2013, with both the Federal Budget and election to follow, you can expect to get the latest ideas and directions from the people at the front line of social policy. Come join the discussion and have your voice heard.

CPD’s Executive Director Miriam Lyons will sit on a panel with Julia Slay of UK think tank the New Economics Foundation, and Kevin Andrews, Shadow Minister for Families, Housing and Human Services:

Assessing community engagement, from frameworks to implementation

This session will examine local community control of services and assess the strengths and gaps in current approaches to community engagement. An international perspective on current trends in community engagement from the UK will be followed by reflections from the panel on this experience in contemporary Australia. Chair: Natasha Mitchell, Host, Life Matters, ABC Radio National
