Confirmation of the location of the conference will be confirmed in the coming weeks. 

We urge you to hold off booking travel and accommodation until you have confirmation of your place at the conference, once the full booking information is available.

Booking information and an FAQ document will be circulated in the next few weeks, with a full agenda closer to the date.

We are pleased to let you know that we will again be hosting the annual parent carer participation conference across 2 days.  Parent carer forum representatives are invited to attend on both days but we will construct the agenda so that it is not essential that you do so.

We look forward to sharing more information about the location and conference agenda with you as it becomes available.
