Research & Advocacy

The Council for the Care of Children is a member of the Australian Research Alliance for Children and Youth (ARACY). ARACY is a not for profit organisation which brings researchers, policy makers and service providers together to improve the lives of children and young people.

We have signed the Commitment to Young Australians developed by ARACY in consultation with children and young people. The Commitment has seven principles to guide decision making about children.
