Research Projects Primary Centre contact: Dr Michele Lonsdale Director of Social Policy and Research email@example.com The Centre conducts research across the children and family services sector, utilising data and information to drive government policy, develop new ideas for the sector, and advocate for change where it is needed most. Our Social Policy and Research team focus on evidence-based practices, and has recently worked on projects around education, family violence, men’s behaviour change, and data regarding foster carers in Victoria. We aim to gather data and information that can drive the actions and goals of the sector, to ensure that we are providing the best support and advocacy possible to children and families across the state. If you are interested in our research, head over to our submissions page to see recent responses to proposed government policies and papers we submitted to recent Royal Commissions.
