Please join us for this special annual event named in honour of Ms Leneen Forde AO who led the 1999 Inquiry into Abuse of Children in Queensland Institutions.

This is an opportunity to hear the speakers draw on their significant experience and examine the complexity that comes with the intersecting jurisdictions of domestic violence and child protection, including the need to make space for the child’s voice to be heard where appropriate.
