The Centre is striving for equitable health and developmental outcomes for all children. We are pleased to announce funding boosts to several of our key projects:
- Our Mental Health in Primary Schools pilot project received state government funding to roll out to 100 additional schools.
- The award-winning By Five program received state government funding to support the transition to an Early Years Innovation Hub.
- Paediatrician Dr Valerie Sung was allocated an NHMRC grant to trial a test for congenital cytomegalovirus (cCMV), the leading infectious cause of deafness and neurodevelopmental disability, which could be treatable within the time-critical newborn period.
- The Raising Children Network has received Australian government funding for a further five years to continue their work providing up-to-date, evidence-based, scientifically validated child development and parenting information.
- Our Changing Children’s Chances collaborative program was recently awarded a $475,000 Australian Research Council Linkage Project grant to determine the most effective policies across Australia to reduce inequities in children’s mental, academic and physical development.
