The 2011-12 financial year has been another productive one for the Australian Institute of Family Studies (AIFS). The Institute has advanced understanding of the factors affecting the functioning of families and the wellbeing of their members. It continued to undertake research and disseminate findings to policy-makers, service providers and the broader community, and has extended its work with a range of government and community sector agencies to help inform policy and improve practice to support families in Australia.

In January 2012, the Institute moved from the Prime Minister and Cabinet (PM&C) portfolio (responsible to the Minister for Social Inclusion, the Hon. Tanya Plibersek MP) to the Families, Housing, Community Services and Indigenous Affairs (FaHCSIA) portfolio. The Hon. Jenny Macklin MP, Minister for Families, Community Services and Indigenous Affairs assumed ministerial responsibility for the Institute.
