The Australian Institute of Family Studies (AIFS) is the Australian Government's key family research body and advisor on family wellbeing. We undertake and publish primary research on a broad range of issues affecting Australian families. Our research increases understanding of the factors that help or hinder the wellbeing of Australia's families. We build the evidence base which can be translated into action on the ground. Our goal is to increase the use of evidence in policy and service delivery to reflect what works for families.
