Our Research Partners

CoAct has been successful in winning a grant through the Australian Research Council (ARC) to undertake a landmark study of how informal and formal networks of unemployed Australians affect their odds of gaining employment.


The study, which is in its final year, is about discovering evidence-based solutions to increase wellbeing and employability among Australia’s unemployed.


Researchers have focused on the long-term unemployed and youth job seekers, two groups that are seen as the most disadvantaged in the Australian labour market.
