Researchers behind the Charter

The Charter was funded by an Australian Research Council Discovery Grant ‘Rights in Records by Design’ (2017-2021), a partnership between Monash and Federation Universities led by Associate Professor Joanne Evans.


The research team acknowledges Dr Frank Golding OAM and Dr Jacqueline Wilson who brought to the project, amongst other attributes, their lived experience as children in care and care leavers – as well as their many years of working with care leavers and advocating for their rights.
