Family and Community Services Insights, Analysis and Research (FACSIAR)

Family and Community Services Insights, Analysis and Research (FACSIAR) is a centre of excellence in human services analysis and research within DCJ. FACSIAR conducts and supports analysis, research and evaluation across DCJ and also works with other government and non-government agencies and research organisations on specific projects, data linkage and research and evaluation activities. This work helps to drive the use of evidence by DCJ and our stakeholders so that we can continually improve what we do and improve outcomes for children, families and communities. 

Our work helps us to understand the areas of child protection, domestic and family violence, out-of-home care, social housing, homelessness, disability, ageing and the human services sector’s resourcing and business operations.
