Families & Communities

We study the policies designed to improve wellbeing and social outcomes. 

Our projects investigate social practices and decisions to do with: 

  • Work and family 
  • Parenting 
  • Childcare 
  • 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.
