Our vision

Our Vision

To improve the health and wellbeing of children through excellence in research.


Our Values

We make a difference by ensuring our research is translated into action now and in the future.

We challenge existing ideas and ourselves, and seek innovative and creative ways of working.

We work together and with our community to bring better health and wellbeing to children.

We care for children and the community, in Western Australia and beyond.

We respect the contributions of all who work at and with the Institute.

We uphold these values as a measure of our success and the integrity of our work and organisation.




Our goal over the next five years is to build on our success and create a research institute that makes a real difference in our community, with a renewed focus on translation and discovery, which will benefit children and families everywhere.

We will do this together - unified in our leadership, excellence, passion, and vision.
