A focus on research

Research is central to the Future Social Service Institute.

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

We support researchers to solve the social service sector’s most pressing, practical problems.

How do we want this new world to look? 

How can it best support those in need of social services?

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