We want to improve policy and practice for families who need extra support in NSW and Australia.

We take a rights-based approach. This means we promote justice, equality and best interests for children and their families.

We work with research experts from many different areas. Some examples are social work, law, health, disability studies and psychology.

We work with First Nations people and culturally and linguistically diverse groups and their organisations. We support community led research that draws on the strengths and knowledge of diverse families and communities.

We use co-design and arts-based methods to support authentic research inclusion for diverse families, including those living with disability.
