Rural Social Work Conference 2019

The Rural Social Work Action Practice Group is proud to host the 14th Biennial Rural Remote Social Work Conference 2019

‘Responding to Challenges, Community Engagement and Innovative Practice’

Social workers in rural/remote communities are constantly responding to diverse challenges, often requiring a strong commitment to seeking creative strategies and responding from both a community development and clinical practice approach.

Stop, take a few days out and come to beautiful Horsham, in the Wimmera region of North Western Victoria. Take a break and reflect on the work that you do and be inspired by how your fellow social workers respond to challenges, engage with the community and deliver innovative practice.

This conference provides a fantastic opportunity to share stories of how social workers have risen to challenges, made the impossible become possible. This conference is unlike other conferences in that it has a long history of appreciating the complexities and the beauty of rural/remote communities, relationships within and across boundaries and interwoven community relationships that have developed over time. Importantly this conference is about the planning and the doing, and ultimately about strengthening the communities well-being.
