By Liz Percival

Conference theme: Learning about New Developments and Networking

The 3rd National Conference on Relationship Education included keynote speakers and more time to network and attend practical workshops covering the new developments in different fields. This year it was a team effort with the Parenting Education & Support Forum, Relate, 2-in-2-1, and the Family Matters Institute putting together the main workshop themes covering parenting, young people and schools, couple and domestic finance relationship issues.
