Partnership for Innovation in Out-of-home Care
Staff partner with organisations across the out-of-home care system to develop and embed social innovations that make a positive difference in the lives of vulnerable children living without parental care. Big policy and practice problems are the starting point for a highly collaborative process involving rigorous research to uncover new insights and better ideas through co-design.
Staff has a depth of experience in out-of-home care research and strategy, and works with managers and practitioners across different practice sites to explore issues and innovative solutions.
