QFKC represents over 5700 Foster and Kinship Carers in Queensland. The conference provides a wonderful opportunity to bring together like-minded people such as carers, government and non-government staff to participate in professional development, network and have fun.

In 2021 our conference theme The Challenge of Change Shaping the Future draws upon the outcomes and feedback from our 2019 carer forums where carers, together with agency and departmental staff not only expressed current challenges within the child protection system they also identified positive change that can shape the future and enhance the lives of our children and young people. We'd love for you to join us at the Conference!
