About Us

The Centre for Evidence and Implementation is an independent, for-purpose, evidence intermediary organisation positioned between the domains of policy, research and practice within child, youth, and family services. Our mission is to achieve the most desirable life outcomes for children facing adversity – and their families and communities – through better use of evidence in practice and policy.
We do this by:
• Generating evidence that contributes to the design of effective policies and programs that support children, families, and their communities
• Translating and disseminating high-quality evidence to support evidence-informed policymaking, thereby promoting policy and service decisions that have the best chance of succeeding.
• Using the science of implementation to build the capacity of organisations to effectively deliver high-quality services.
• Increasing the effectiveness of policy and services through rigorous evaluation.
