Research will be central to the Future Social Service Institute.

Consumer driver social sector reform is well underway in Australia and in other parts of the world, particularly Asia where a new welfare state is under rapid construction.

The Institute will support researchers to solve the sector’s most pressing, practical problems.

How do we want this new world to look? 

How can it best support those in need of support and assistance?

Our research output will align with the existing VCOSS-RMIT Industry Fellowship Research Program and PhD Scholarship program.
