About the Families and Children Expert Panel Project

The Families and Children (FaC) Expert Panel Project provides tools and expertise aimed at building the capacity of FaC service providers to use evidence in practice.

Established in 2014, the Expert Panel Project is managed by the Australian Institute of Family Studies (AIFS) on behalf of DSS.

In 2018 the Expert Panel was refreshed via an open tender process and ten organisations were appointed to the panel. AIFS will commission members from the Expert Panel to work with FaC providers where there is an identified need for support.

FaC service providers can also contract members of the Expert Panel Industry List to work with them to plan, implement and evaluate programs.

AIFS shares information about the Expert Panel and the Industry List through the Child Family Community Australia (CFCA) information exchange. CFCA’s mission is to share knowledge about what works to improve outcomes for children and families.
