Our projects

Evaluation can:

  • help us all understand what works, and for who, and in what circumstances, and why
  • help us identify and build on the strengths of existing policies and programs
  • help stop policies and programs that are doing harm, rather than doing good
  • contribute to efforts to ensure that the voices of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people are heard
  • promote accountability.

We carry out evaluations of policies and programs that affect Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

We can also work with you to design programs and policies that can be evaluated.

We also write content that contributes to the health and wellbeing of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
