Australian Institute of Family Studies

The Australian Institute of Family Studies (AIFS) is an Australian government research institute responsible for research into the wellbeing of Australian families and communities. Over the past 37 years, AIFS has undertaken significant research in a range of areas relating to family wellbeing, including child and adolescent development, work and family, indigenous families, parenting, domestic violence, child protection, and family law. Right Lane worked with AIFS staff over a series of interactions to define a set of organisational values that represent ‘what matters most’ to staff in their work at the Institute.
