Undertaking research that informs policy and practice
Collaboration and consultation
At the Department of Sociology we engage in research collaboration and consultancy, as well as more informal ways of knowledge sharing.
We are able to provide advice and training on research methods, approaches to evaluation and a range of policy-related topics, including:
- social services
- diversity and inclusion
- disaster resilience.
We partner with a wide variety of organisations to enhance their research, advocacy and practice, including:
- The Whiddon Group
- United Voice
- The Health Services Union
- The Australian Services Union
- The Australian Council of Trade Unions
- The Inner West Council.
Members of the department sit on committees and boards in various external organisations, including Shelter NSW and COTA.
