Supporting Vulnerability through Collaborative Practice Symposium

As part of the Early Childhood Development Program in conjunction with Anglicare and North Central Victorian Family Service Alliance, a series of 3 Symposiums are planned for North Central Victoria for August 2022.

These Symposiums are free but will require registration.

The Symposium will be open for participation/attendance by all professionals working with children aged 0- 5 and will provide an amazing opportunity to hear from international Guest Speaker Lisa Cherry as well as other key local services supporting vulnerable families.
