Child, youth and family wellbeing

The wellbeing of children, young people and their families is important to us.
Unfortunately in Tasmania, many measures of wellbeing are declining and some children, young people and families are experiencing significant difficulties.

Our research can inform decisions about policy, systems and service improvement for children, young people and families.

Healthy ageing

Tasmania is well placed to lead innovations that support people to age well at home.
Around one-fifth of Tasmanians are aged 65 or older – and this rate is even higher in rural areas.

Our research can help our State with decisions about policy, systems and services for older Tasmanians.

Housing and homelessness

We believe that everyone has a right to a home.

Housing options for low-income Tasmanians are limited due to a shortage of affordable rentals and social housing in our State.

Homelessness has a significant impact on health and wellbeing. It also affects educational outcomes and makes it harder to find and keep a job.

Our research highlights the importance of affordable housing as essential infrastructure.

Financial wellbeing

Gambling causes significant harm to many Tasmanians.

A public health approach to reduce the harm caused by gambling is essential.

We know through our research and our support services that poker machines in particular cost many people their health, relationships, jobs and homes. We support the introduction of additional consumer protection measures, and the removal of poker machines from pubs and clubs.

Our research can help our State with decisions about policy, systems and services for Tasmanians harmed by gambling.
