The challenge

Our challenge was to build an easily accessible online hub for ARACY’s research and resources for improving the wellbeing of Australia’s youth, and encourage collaboration within the child and youth wellbeing community.

Project highlights

We delivered a digital product that connects decision makers with research, and one another.

  • Provided a range of ways for users to easily locate related research and resources.
  • Developed a streamlined workflow that allowed ARACY’s staff to approve new research submissions more efficiently.
  • Encouraged academics and policymakers to interact and share information so that the published research gets used.

Connecting people with evidence

Since this website revolves around the ability to find not only a particular project but also to explore similar projects, we provided a range of ways for users to browse the Programs, Practices and Tools, making it easier for them to cross-reference related research.

Custom workflow for fast approvals

At the core of What works for kids is a custom workflow that allows the small team at ARACY to efficiently manage reviewing and approving multiple research projects. By streamlining this complex review process, we ensured this valuable resource can be easily and efficiently maintained by ARACY's staff.

Encouraging collaboration and change

With a view to promoting collaboration amongst child and youth wellbeing decision makers, What works for kids includes discussion forums on the various Programs, Practices and Tools in use and the opportunity to upload their own. This has created the opportunity for digital community where they can achieve greater outcomes for child and youth wellbeing.

Providing access to valuable resources

We delivered an online hub that aims to improve access to vital research and connect decision makers. Making this research database freely available online ensures that it’ll be used, promoting and providing evidence on child and youth wellbeing for all.

This is the best IT project I have ever worked on it in terms of innovation, exceeding expectations, and staying on track. I have been recommending you to everyone I deal with.
