Wanslea is excited to present at this year's AIFS Conference in June.
Wanslea have been accepted to present at the Australian Institute of Family Studies conference in Melbourne in June 2022.
Dr Anita Lumbus, Wanslea’s Senior Research Development Officer and grandparent carer Wendy Jones will be presenting on the second day of the conference, 16 June, on ‘Understanding the impact of the caring role on grandparents raising their grandchildren’.
Anita and Wendy will talk about research with grandparent carers, culminating in the Fairer Future for Grandchildren campaign and calls to action to better recognise and support grandparent carers, in order to keep their grandchildren safe and secure in their care.
The conference will be held at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre from 15 – 17 June, and brings together key policy makers, practitioners, researchers and leaders to explore how policies and service systems can better support families.
Wanslea is excited to be part of a conference that provides an opportunity to showcase this important research aimed at helping families.
