Families at Risk: The effects of chronic and multiple disadvantage

Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned report


The Families at Risk study has produced local evidence drawing attention to the strengths and challenges for parents living in situations of chronic and multiple disadvantage with children aged 0 to 7 years. Life for the majority of these parents and young children is under-resourced, stressful and isolated, and interventions are required that open up pathways out of disadvantaged life situations.

The findings of the Families at Risk study affirm key aspects of the South Australian Government’s Generational Health Review, as well as recent state, federal and international policy frameworks to promote health and well-being in the ‘early years’.
