Child-Centred Policy

At the Children’s Policy Centre we undertake rights-based, child-centred research with children to understand their views, experiences and priorities. 

Our research findings contribute to the development of policies that are child-centred and child-inclusive.

Projects

Supporting Young Parents: Assessing Policy Change

SEED is a highly ambitious project aiming to bring about transformative policy change and systems reform to support young parents and their children to flourish. The Children’s Policy Centre is conducting a research-based, qualitative, embedded evaluation of SEED, which will contribute to transformative change, map the story of this work, and document a pathway for expansion of the model to other vulnerable groups.
