Professor Kelley Johnson has undertaken research across a wide range of social policy issues both nationally and internationally.  She has managed a national action research evaluation of the Stronger Families and Communities project at the Australian Institute of Family Studies; has undertaken research in relation to attitudes to poverty, and services for older people; and has conducted evaluations of government and non-government organisations. However, her main focus has been in researching with people with disabilities with a particular interest in gender, deinstitutionalisation, community living and sexuality and relationships.
