The Parenting Research Centre brings scientific rigour to the practical task of improving the quality and effectiveness of services and supports provided to children and families.
We work collaboratively with policymakers and service delivery agencies in the welfare, health and education sectors, guided by a common aim to improve services.
In partnership with our clients, we design, adapt, implement and evaluate approaches to parenting support.
We do this through our expertise in six inter-related work areas:
- knowledge translation and exchange
- practice design
- research design and analysis
- knowledge synthesis.
Our skills, combined with our partners’ capabilities, enable us to provide clients with insight, advice and recommendations that are supported by rigorous research and are responsive to their needs.
