FaHCSIA Research News is a periodic newsletter that provides an overview of and update on research within FaHCSIA, focusing on key findings and outcomes, updates on new departmental publications and promotion of forthcoming events/conferences.

The feature article reports on four years of work by the National Evaluation Consortium (Social Policy Research Centre, at the University of New South Wales, and the Australian Institute of Family Studies), which has culminated in the recent release of the National evaluation (2004–2008) of the Stronger Families and Communities Strategy 2004–2009 and the Stronger families in Australia study: the impact of Communities for Children (SFIA). The evaluation findings have helped inform the development of the Family Support Program announced in February 2009.
