Full time Social Work Research Appointment

We are delighted that from November Dr Sarah Wise will be working with us on a full-time basis.


Her joint appointment with Berry Street has been an important initiative and she will continue to foster key collaborations in our shared areas of research in child and family welfare. Sarah’s social innovation platform MABL (Mobilising change Agents for Better Lives) will continue to be an important component of her work, with her research focussing on unborn and very young children and their mothers.

Sarah has worked for social impact for more than 20 years and has held leadership positions in the government, university and community service sectors. She has carried out a large body of research related to children and families with vulnerabilities and has made significant contributions to complex policy evaluations, social reforms and program design.
