The conference was challenging, vibrant and inspiring. It brought together hundreds of committed leaders to share knowledge, ideas and research to achieve better outcomes for the wellbeing and safety for all children and young people.

LWB presented three abstracts to share our knowledge and research around evidence-informed practices and programs, recruitment and assessment of foster carers, and the concept of relational permanence to inform better policy development.
