Speaking up from experience

Our advocacy, research and social policy work draws on our experience engaging with disadvantaged people, families and communities:

  • Advocacy – we build awareness of injustice and advocate for social change based on grounded research and experience
  • Research – we identify areas of unmet need, conduct and publish research and use our findings to advocate for change in keeping with our vision of ‘building a just society’
  • Policy – we regularly respond to social justice issues and produce a number of policy submissions and papers each year

Issues that drive us

We explore social issues such as:

  • young people and adults in the justice system
  • education, training and employment pathways
  • people with complex needs
  • people seeking asylum
  • complex and entrenched disadvantage
  • family violence
