Child and Family Services and Community Engagement

Many children and families spend significant time navigating education, health, and community services, while for others there are barriers to access that only serve to perpetuate inequalities.

Our research seeks to influence service provision in ways that address these barriers through understanding:

  • How do children and families engage in education, health, and community services?
  • What are their experiences, enablers, barriers, and outcomes?
  • How and when can education, health, and community professionals partner with parents to enhance outcomes for children and families?
  • What is needed to best work alongside children and families from a wide range of backgrounds, cultures, and identities?
