Research

The FAC is a national leader in fatherhood research, with a focus on fathers of young children and babies and supporting these fathers in their relationship with their partners. Our other major area of research is Strong Families: Capable Communities. The Centre’s considerable research in these fields provides evidence for policy and service system innovations that better mobilise capabilities to improve individual, family and community outcomes.
