The policy forums have two aims: to share expert knowledge about trends for Australian families and, together, consider what we need to do differently in a policy sense to better support families and communities.
Families Australia will be holding several forums in the future, from each we’ll collect key ideas which could represent new ways of thinking about and responding to current and anticipated challenges facing families.
The presentations from forums are available below.
Building Stronger Australian Families – Dr Brian Babington
Framing Future Family Policy for Longer Collective Action and Impact – Professor Alan Hayes AM, Distinguished Professor of Family Studies, Director, Family Action Centre, Faculty of Health & Medicine, University of Newcastle.
Joining forces: Policies for work and family – Dr Lyndall Strazdins, Associate Professor and ARC Future Fellow, National Centre of Epidemiology and Population Health, Australian National University.
