Closing the Gap Clearinghouse

A knowledge centre for evidence-based research on overcoming disadvantage for Indigenous Australians

The Closing the Gap Clearinghouse website is hosted by the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare: Closing the Gap Clearinghouse

The Closing the Gap Clearinghouse is a Council of Australian Governments initiative jointly funded by all Australian governments. It is being delivered by the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare in collaboration with the Australian Institute of Family Studies.

In line with this aim, the clearinghouse will focus on identifying and communicating key findings from the following types of research:

The research made available through the clearinghouse is not necessarily limited to Australian or Indigenous-specific research and evaluations, but also draws on wider evidence that can be used to inform all phases of policy development and actions to close the gap on Indigenous disadvantage. While its primary audience is government policy-makers and service providers, the clearinghouse would also be available to meet the needs of researchers and the general public.
