Foyer Foundation Annual Conference 2018

The Foyer Foundation in partnership with Foyer Oxford will convene the 2018 Foyer Foundation Annual Conference in Perth, WA on Tuesday 25th and Wednesday 26th September. Book your ticket.


This year’s Annual Conference will feature a range of speakers including local and international experts, researchers, foyer residents and alumni, national and state policy makers and practitioners from around Australia.


The theme of the 2018 Foyer Foundation Annual Conference is ‘Harnessing Potential: the Australian Foyer Movement’. The program will enable delegates to learn about and share a broad range of issues including adaptations and innovations to Foyer models, youth participation, increasing access and building readiness for youth justice and care cohorts, best inclusivity practice, foyer pathways, extending the impact of foyers in your community, quality data collection, and embedding strong linkages to education and employment.


The Conference will bring together Foyer operators, Foyer residents (young people), Government at all levels, welfare and support groups, businesses and philanthropists to learn, collaborate and network. We are delighted to invite you to join us at this national event and be part of the growing Australian Foyer movement.
