Our research

Our research agenda is centred on identifying unmet needs and developing more effective interventions in the areas of financial security, safety and resilience, and educational pathways. We seek research collaborations and cross-sector partnerships and adopt the research methodology best suited to each inquiry. Past studies have used literature and policy reviews, participatory action research, network analysis, qualitative interviews, quantitative surveys, and evaluation research.
