Welcome

Thank you for joining us at the 2017 DV NSW conference

This conference is an opportunity for our sector to come together. There are so many domestic violence sector conferences these days. So many options and too many of them are run for by profit companies which blow the annual budget of a small NGO in one hit.

DVNSW’s conference is designed specifically for our members and our sector. This year once again we’ve tried to bring together the best of academia, practice, policy, inspiration and advocacy from NSW and beyond.

We’ve listened to feedback from DVNSW members. You told us that you want a programme with workshops, plenaries, panels and opportunities for learning. You told us you want space to discuss policy and develop better advocacy skills. We won’t ask you to make choices between concurrent sessions, we’ve tried to cover the breadth of what’s new and best of all we’ve kept it at a reasonable price. Oh and the food will be hot.

Please join us to celebrate the achievements of the NSW domestic and family violence sector and to help us shape a safer future- let us stand together to create change.

Moo, Sophie, Trish, Kelly, Emily & Emma
