The Australian Institute of Family Studies has had another very successful year, again undertaking and disseminating research to policy-makers, service providers and the community. To this end, the Institute worked with a range of other government and community sector agencies to undertake research to inform policy and practice.
Following the last federal election, the Institute remained within the portfolio of the Prime Minister and Cabinet, with The Hon. Tanya Plibersek MP, Minister for Social Inclusion, assuming responsibility for the Institute following machinery of government changes.
Formal agreements have continued with a number of government departments and organisations, including the Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet (PM&C), the Department of Families, Housing, Community Services and Indigenous Affairs (FaHCSIA), the Attorney-General's Department (AGD), the Department of Education, Employment and Workforce Relations (DEEWR), the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare (AIHW), and the Australian Institute of Criminology (AIC). A new relationship has been formalised with the Australian Government Department of Human Services (DHS) to undertake research to inform the Department's innovations in service delivery to families and communities.
