Children and Families Research Centre
The Children and Families Research Centre is an interdisciplinary centre for research and outreach in the Faculty of Human Sciences, Macquarie University. It has been established to meet the need for information about how best to support children and their families in Australia. Families are the main influence on the development of children along with other people and settings such as teachers and schools. Australian data are needed about the development of children in the context of their families and other settings so that policy can be based on relevant and high quality research information.
The Children and Families Research Centre is unique in its focus on the developmental, social and educational factors affecting children and families in Australia.
