Business Summary
Advancing the Wellbeing of Australian Families
About Us

Established in 2001, Families Australia provides policy advice to the Federal Government and Parliament on ways to increase the wellbeing of families, especially those experiencing the greatest vulnerability and marginalisation. It does so on behalf of around 800 member organisations around Australia, all of whom work to advance family wellbeing and participation.

Families Australia takes a ‘hands-on’ approach by partnering with government, service delivery organisations and researchers to suggest, trial and deliver practical, innovative solutions to problems facing families. As well as our focus on improving child safety and wellbeing and ending family and domestic violence, we have a strong interest in policies that encourage workforce participation whilst maintaining healthy family dynamics.
