Families Australia is committed to the development of broadly-based and relevant policy given:

  • the diversity of family forms in Australia today
  • the significance of extended families to the health and wellbeing of families
  • the complexities of the current split of responsibilities between Australian and State and Territory Governments.

The focus of Families Australia is on developing and contributing to public policy which impacts on families, young people and children nationally.
