*** Rescheduled to March 2022 ***

Aotearoa's community based social services have played an essential role getting families and whānau through the pandemic. It is time for us to gather together and build on our strengths from this unprecedented time.

There will be lots of opportunities to network, generate and share ideas, plan action, hear from experts and sector leaders, and learn from each other. The conference will deliver information to get you up to date on the latest developments in government policy, social service practice, workforce development and a host of other topics. As your host, SSPA is putting together an exciting programme - so watch this space, and make sure you register to attend.

You will leave the conference informed, reconnected and ready to take ideas for action back to your organisation. You will be revitalised to take up the challenges and opportunities of working in te ao hurihuri together with Aotearoa's children, rangatahi, families and whānau.
