Courage in Kindness:

Driving Change in Work and Community

16-19 September 2018 | Stamford Grand Glenelg | Adelaide

Welcome to the 2018 Anglicare Australia Conference

It is with great pleasure that Anglicare Australia invites you to the 2018 Anglicare Australia National Conference, to be held at the Stamford Grand Glenelg in Adelaide, from 16-19 September, 2018. Register for the conference by clicking here, and for the Dinner and Awards Ceremony by clicking here.

Adelaide offers outstanding art and music, a burgeoning small-bar scene, and a festival calendar that is world-class. Our conference venue is located in the vibrant seaside shopping suburb of Glenelg, and is a short tram ride away from Rundle Mall, the Botanic Gardens, and Adelaide Central Markets. We are all looking forward to seeing how Adelaide has evolved in the eight years since we visited for our last conference.

As with all of our conferences, delegates will be treated to concurrent sessions from experts from across the Anglicare network; some outstanding keynote addresses; and networking opportunities throughout the three days.

Our theme for 2018, Courage in Kindness: Driving Change in Work and Community, captures our work and our mission. As Anglicare Australia Network members, we work in hundreds of communities across Australia responding to the needs of people in need of care. And as a network, we are always working towards our shared goals, collaborating to improve our work, and supporting each other as we advance our mission.

Speakers will include:

  » Dr Rebecca Huntley, social researcher and media commentator
  » Kate Hillman, Director at Ernst and Young
  » Professor John Pollaers, Chair of the Aged Care Workforce Strategy Taskforce
  » Associate Professor Lorna Hallahan, disability expert
  » David Pearson, Executive Director of the Don Dunstan Foundation
  » Associate Professor Alwin Chong, Indigenous health and families expert
  » Debra Saffrey-Collins will deliver the annual John Roffey Lecture

More information about the program, as well as conference logistics, is available in the conference brochure and detailed program.
