A network of professionals connected in their purpose to improve outcomes for children and young people

Your Childhood Professional Community Network

Join us!

For over thirty years we have been supporting professionals who work alongside us.

We established the ‘Professional Community Network’ to build connection in the field. We believe this connectedness creates opportunities and possibilities through shared hope, discovery and innovating thinking.

By joining our online Professional Community in one of the three ways shown below, you can discover how other like-minded professionals learn and work, get inspired, download valuable resources, read great news reviews, and enhance your knowledge of research and advocacy.

We hope you choose to stay connected, we’d love to let you know of a couple more exciting initiatives we’ll be due to launch soon.

Delivered monthly to your inbox

Childhood Professional Network Newsletter

Our e-newsletters help connect you to new resources being developed, professional development opportunities including exclusive access to video content with experts in the field, webinars and information about upcoming Speaker Tours.

It’s free and we’d love to keep you in the loop.

Online Professional Community App!

We are excited to share that we are currently building an online community space for professionals in the network.  This space will be accessible via any smart device through an app and will host resources, video content, training and opportunities to connect with each other and share your insights.  Members of the community will also receive discount rates to Australian Childhood Foundation events.

The app will be launched to a pilot group to begin.  If you’d like to be part of it you can express your interest here.
