We use our understanding of health, justice and partnership to develop policy solutions that take services directly to people in need, rather than relying on those people to navigate complex service systems to seek assistance
Our policy advocacy draws on the experience of our unique national network of health justice partnerships and the communities they support, to achieve lasting change through systemic reform. Our policy priorities focus on:
- Supporting policy-makers and system administrators to improve the effectiveness of the health, legal and social service systems, particularly for communities experiencing disadvantage
- Improving the integration of human services to better meet communities needs
- Providing unique analysis and advice about how to improve collaboration and partnership within service systems to meet particular policy priorities such as improved responses to domestic and family violence.
Our policy advocacy is informed by the evaluative and other evidence we develop in collaboration with multi-disciplinary research experts, ensuring the application of rigorous, reliable research to relevant and achievable policy solutions.
