Our strategic aims

CoAct's aim is to build the recognition and influence of the collective impact of our network.

We want to be a proactive rather than a reactive force, influencing policy and demonstrating sector leadership through our culture of research and innovation. This will increase our capacity to build and drive continuous improvement, improve communities across the network and give our members a platform and a voice to share and promote their work.

Our research experience

CoAct's focus on, and interest in, social policy and research can be traced back to 2003 and the inception of the Social Policy Committee. The committee was established by the Board to demonstrate CoAct's commitment to play a greater role in social policy initiatives. A dedicated research and policy role was also created.

CoAct has undertaken a number of activities focused on research and policy over the years, including:

  • Funding a pilot employment program to assist refugees
  • Making numerous submissions to government on topics such as the reform of employment services, remote and Indigenous employment services and disability employment reform
  • Conducting research such as the 2008 paper entitled 'why the long-term unemployed can't get a job'
  • Undertaking a social and environmental audit

Let us co-design a street-wise solution for your organisation that addresses your business needs and brings opportunities to your community.
