We promise that you’ll leave with more knowledge about how you can include family and whānau perspectives in your own work plus a better understanding of how to use evidence. We expect to be disestablished from mid-2018 and want to sign off with a final Evidence to Action conference where we pass on some of what we’ve learned about families and whānau since 2004*.
The conference will be held at Rydges Hotel in Wellington. For non-Wellington attendees, we will have somehwere for you to store bags etc if needed.
