Meet our people

The Centre works at the interface of education, health and welfare.

It has strong and well established working links with many other research organisations and academics from across the University as well as from other tertiary institutions.

The multi-disciplinary nature of the Centre means we have the ability to draw on a wide range of experience and expertise to provide for all aspects of a project.
