About Parenting Research Centre

Parents are the single most important influence on a child’s wellbeing. So working with them is often the most effective way to help children thrive.

How we work

The way we work is just as important as the type of work we do. We're known for our supportive and approachable style and our focus on learning and discovery.

Who we work with

We help governments and community organisations in the fields of health, education and welfare put the best evidence on parenting support into action.

Our Leadership Team

Our leadership team members are talented and committed professionals with a strong track record in both the theory, research and practice of effective parenting support.

Our Board

Our Board brings together a diverse range of expertise across business, child health, psychology, family services and research.


We want to work with like-minded people who wish to seek and share scientific knowledge on effective parenting and provide leadership on parenting issues.

Our journey

The landscape has changed significantly in the 20 years we've been in business. And the future is bright, as the idea of putting evidence to work really gains momentum.

Our commitment to Reconciliation

Our Reconciliation Action Plan aids a deeper understanding of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples' culture and history.

Our child safe policy

We are committed to child safety and wellbeing in all aspects of our work.
