Who are we?



What are we doing?

How can we close the education gap for students in low socioeconomic communities – and ensure they have the schooling they deserve to create a future of their choosing?

Sydney Policy Lab - Building Evidence and Enhancing Capability / Australia Cares.

Collaborating with independent experts, leaders and practitioners, the initiative researches the capability-building needs of organisations and groups – collectively termed, ‘civil society’. The goal is to find out the help and interventions that will enhance the sector’s impact over time.
