Hosts Logos Parenting Research Centre ARACY Facebook Twitter
1st Biennial Australian Implementation Conference | Melbourne Convention Exhibition Centre  |  25 & 26 October 2012


The Australian Research Alliance for Children and Youth (ARACY) is a national non-profit organisation which focuses on bringing together researchers, policymakers and practitioners, to turn the best evidence on "what works" for child and youth wellbeing into practical, preventative action to benefit all young Australians.

Established in 2001, ARACY continues to build on the foundation that the complex issues affecting young Australians can’t be solved by one individual or organisation working in isolation. That’s why the team at ARACY, along with our 3000+ members, are in the business of brokering practical and innovative strategies to improve child and youth wellbeing.

Through these collaborative efforts, we have led positive change in many areas of early childhood, middle years and youth development, and more than tripled our membership in recent years. Our strategic directions and decisions about priorities and activities are driven by our guiding principles.

Membership of ARACY is free, and members receive a discount to the 2014 Australian Implementation Conference.  Join ARACY to contribute to building a healthier future for our children.
