Knowledge translation

From knowledge to action

The Centre of Excellence is committed to putting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander knowledge and wisdom into the hands of the people and organisations who can put it to practical use.

Knowledge translation helps practitioners and policy makers make informed, evidence-based decisions to improve child protection practice, policymaking and outcomes for children, young people and families.

Our goal is to share, connect and apply family-oriented Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander knowledge in a way that’s relevant and meaningful for our sector.

We want to break down the barriers between knowledge and practice to ensure that our children, young people and families are benefiting from evidence-based knowledge and experience and provide practitioners and policy makers with practical tools to support them in this effort.
