The Australian Institute of Family Studies (AIFS) has had a very successful year conducting research on issues related to family wellbeing and disseminating our research to a wide audience of policy-makers, practitioners and the Australian community. Our work has focused on our seven longitudinal studies and issues that directly relate to the complex lives of Australian families in the 21st century. Some of these areas have included the settlement of newly arrived humanitarian migrants, young people entering and leaving out-of-home care (OOHC), the role of Independent Children's Lawyers in the family law system, the health and wellbeing of defence force veterans and their families, and potential outcomes associated with gambling.
The change of government in September 2013 led to a renaming of our portfolio department from Families, Housing, Community Services and Indigenous Affairs to the Department of Social Services under the Minister, the Hon. Kevin Andrews MP.
