Our Vision

All children and their families succeed
in life.

Five core Elements

Evidence-based strategies to achieve outcomes for children, families and communities.

Place-Based Approach

Schools as the place to support disadvantaged communities.

Our Approach

Our Place is a holistic place-based approach to supporting the education, health and development of all children and families in disadvantaged communities by utilising the universal platform of a school.

Our vision is that all children and their families succeed in life. We aim to reshape the service system by influencing changes in policies and practices that address the structural causes of disadvantage.

Evidence indicates
that education is
the key to lifting the
aspirations and
improving the lives
of children and
their families.
