Activate is the premier event for the sector - the place where social service leaders and practitioners come together and connect with decision makers.

The conference will have an exciting mix of keynote speakers, expo sessions, workshops, table talk, open space, and an Unconference session. There will be lots of opportunities to network, share ideas, generate ideas and plan action, hear from experts and sector leaders, and share and learn together. 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.

With a programme ranging from changing demographics and what that means for culturally competent services, to deep dive workshops, you will leave the conference informed and inspired and ready to take ideas for action back to your organisation.

The Dunedin Centre, 21 – 22 October 2019, Dunedin.
