The New Zealand Coalition to End Homelessness (NZCEH) is honoured to invite you to attend the 2018 Addressing Whānau Homelessness Conference. We extend a warm invitation to service providers,
academics, researchers, and community practitioners and members.

The conference is open to attendance by all. The theme of the conference ‘He whānau whare kore, he kai mate hau Addressing whānau homelessness’ broadens our understanding of
whānau/family to include whānui and all communities of support.

It is from an understanding of our interconnectedness that we can work together to address the struggles impacting the diverse communities that we belong to.

We encourage abstracts for oral presentations (15 minutes + 5 minutes questions) or poster presentations that include one or more of the following:

  1. Innovative ways of working with street and community whānau/families.
  2. Experiences with whānau/families from diverse social and cultural backgrounds (including Māori, Pacific, refugee, migrant, visible and non-visible disabilities, youth, ageing and LGBTQI+)
  3. New solutions for persistent challenges to address whānau/family well-being.

Abstract submission process:

Abstracts of 150 words must be submitted via Submit an Abstract form. The submission must include a title of no more than 15 words; the aim of your presentation and some background to your presentation.
