2017 National Foster & Kinship Care Conference

Foster Carers Association NT has a commitment to the ongoing professional development of foster and kinship carers in the Northern Territory and as such we offer sponsorship to a number of carers to attend the National Conference each year. This year the event will be held in Melbourne and we are offering 10 sponsored places at the conference to carers throughout the Northern Territory.

Each year we invite Carers to submit an application for Sponsorship with an understanding that the approved carer will share their experience in some way to other carers i.e. presentation about their learnings or experiences, photo album of the event, or a brief summary of something that inspired you so that we can include it in our Newsletter or on our website.

Each application is considered on merit with other applicants. Priority will be given to Carers who have not previously been sponsored by Foster Carers Association NT to attend a National Conference.

Foster Carers Association NT will pay for: 

Conference fees
Return airfares from Darwin, Alice Springs and Tenant Creek (where applicable)
Standard Room accommodation
1 x tickets to Gala Dinner

Sponsored Carer will pay for:

All meals (excluding Gala Dinner)
Other hotel expenses such telephone, internet, mini bar, etc.
All taxi fares and airport transfers

Only carers will be able to apply for sponsorship to the National Conference. Children will not be sponsored.
