Australian Research Alliance for Children and Youth


ARACY is a platform to advocate for evidence to inform effective policies and efficient investments in child and youth wellbeing (0-24 years).

At a time when governments are more receptive to the knowledge, skills and wisdom of the non-government sector, our broad member base is a rich source of well-informed ideas.

ARACY opens opportunities for members to influence child and youth agendas through:

  • the co-operative development of submissions
  • participation in policy forums
  • strategic engagement with opinion-leaders and decision makers on key issues
  • the development and implementation of high quality evidence, such as the recent Better systems, better chances review of early intervention service system reform

Join us to influence the discussion and decisions about the best use of scarce resources to improve child and youth wellbeing (0-24 years) in Australia.
