‘All young people are loved and safe, have material basics, are healthy, are learning and participating and have a positive sense of culture and identity’

Why join ARACY?

ARACY is Australia’s peak alliance positively influencing the trajectories of child and youth wellbeing nationally. We are the only Australian organisation that takes a holistic approach to child and youth wellbeing, across the entire child to youth spectrum. We drive alliances; broker the transfer of knowledge and exchange of ideas; promote collaborative practice; develop capacity and influence important agendas in the wellbeing of children and youth.

ARACY’s wide network of highly-valued members, both individuals and organisations, contribute their expertise and leadership to this nation-building task. Join us and contribute to making Australia a place where children and young people have the best start in life, and are supported by families and communities to grow into healthy, resilient and productive adult members of the community.

Here’s what some of our members say about ARACY:

‘I believe ARACY is an important network to look at child and youth wellbeing with a holistic approach’

‘ARACY provides the sector, government and community with social research that needs to be considered in decision making process where children and young people will be affected – thanks!’

‘An interesting resource of people, research and policy. An organisation designed to promote human dignity’.

ARACY receives some funding from government for specific projects. What your membership fee will allow us to do is something no government will fund: advocacy for what the evidence tells us will benefit children and young people. With your help, we will have a voice for evidence with all governments around Australia.
