Association of Children's Welfare Agencies

The Association of Children's Welfare Agencies (ACWA) is the NSW non-government peak body representing the voice of community organisations working with vulnerable children, young people and their families.

We work with our members, partners, government and non-government agencies and other peak bodies to bring about positive systemic reform that will deliver better outcomes to the lives of children and young people, including those living in out-of-home care.

The Centre for Community Welfare Training (CCWT) is a Registered Training Organisation which provides cost effective and accessible training opportunities for people working across the community welfare sector in NSW, in particular those working with vulnerable children, young people and families.

CCWT provides both short courses and in-house training as well as specialised programs, coaching and supervision.
