The Kids in Communities Study: national investigation of community level effects on children's developmental outcomes.
Grant number: LP130100411 | Funding period: 2014 - 2018
This project (a cross-disciplinary collaboration) will investigate community level factors influencing early childhood developmental outcomes using a mixed methods approach in up to 10 communities across Australia. This will result in a potential set of measures or indicators that reflect communities that are good for children.
