Our Research

Family First is a leading voice on family issues in the media and public domain.

Family First also hosts conferences and brings in international experts; produces and publishes relevant and stimulating material in newspapers, magazines, and other media; and enables families to make submissions to local and central government on issues affecting them. Our goal is to participate in social analysis and debate, and advocate for families regarding public policy and laws.
