Our inaugural project

This project, funded by the Paul Ramsay Foundation, is focused on supporting young Australians who are not in education, employment or training; and families where no-one in the household is employed.


Our work is intended to generate evidence that helps transform the employment system to better service young people and families with more complex needs. The project was delivered in partnership with The Behavioural Insights Team. Find out more.
