Australian Research Alliance for Children and Youth


The Operating Principles of The Nest Action Agenda point out that how we work is as important as what we do.

ARACY develops sector capacity to take a holistic view of child and youth wellbeing, and to respond to early indicators of need.

Initially funded by the Australian Government under the National Framework for Protecting Australia’s Children, the Common Approach prevents issues escalating into more serious difficulties for young people and families.

Contact ARACY regarding your training needs, whether you are interested in using the Common Approach:

  • in daily practice, as a practitioner or professional
  • at a local organisational level to plan, structure and support administrative processes, services and curriculum
  • to support systemic change, through a ‘train-the-trainer’ model involving a competency-based endorsement process of experienced trainers

Join professionals who are using the Common Approach across education, health and social service organisations throughout Australia.
