Families & Communities

We study the policies designed to improved wellbeing and social outcomes

Our projects investigate social practices and decisions to do with:

  • work and family
  • parenting
  • child care
  • gendered/household division of work
  • child and family wellbeing
  • child welfare and family support.

We also investigate the programs and institutions that mediate these everyday practices, including flexible work policy, and programs to support children and young people.

Our research projects include focused studies of local programs, national studies, and international case study and comparative research.
