The Social Research Centre aims is to be Australia’s trusted evidence partner for social research. However, our colonisation historically has defined who conducts research about whom, and most studies have been designed, implemented, and interpreted by non-Indigenous researchers. We understand that current structures in our industry may not yet be adequate for undertaking research that fully supports Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. It’s time to change that.

Social Research Centre is keen to support an Indigenous-led civil society partner to develop Australia’s most inclusive and comprehensive annual survey of First Nations peoples, and of the general public on issues of Indigenous importance.


We seeking expressions of interest from leading Indigenous civil society organisations to work closely with us in the development of a culturally-safe and First Nations-supportive social research platform.

Aims + Outcomes

Ultimately, we aim to create a research platform that helps elevate and amplify the perspectives of First Nations people, by accurately and appropriately representing their views and experiences to inform truly inclusive public policy.

In doing so, this project seeks to question what we know and how we came to know it, transforming our methods through the incorporation of Indigenous perspectives and Indigenous leadership, so that we might conduct culturally safe research together with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander staff, partners, and participants.

This project forms part of Social Research Centre’s Reconciliation Action Plan, developed together with Reconciliation Australia, supporting our journey to create a business culture where partnerships are respectful, inclusive, and empowering and our research is relevant and representative.
