A research and impact partnership

ACOSS (the Australian Council of Social Service) has partnered with UNSW Sydney to undertake a five year research and impact collaboration to sharpen the national focus on poverty and inequality in Australia. The partnership monitors trends in poverty and inequality over time, explores drivers, and develops solutions to sharpen the focus and stimulate action to tackle these policy challenges. We are now in our second five-year phase of the partnership, backed by new NGO partners: 54 reasons, ARACY, Foodbank Australia, Jesuit Social Services, Life Without Barriers and Settlement Services International, with new philanthropic partner John Mitchell; and phase one partners who continue into phase two: Brotherhood of St Laurence, cohealth, a Victorian community health service, Mission Australia and The Smith Family; along with Australian Communities Foundation subfunds Hart Line and the David Morawetz Social Justice Fund.
