122,000+ Australians are homeless on any given night

46,000+ children live in out-of-home-care

Indigenous people are 2.5x more likely to be unemployed than non-Indigenous people

The SouLab difference

While we have strong technical expertise, our work is underpinned by our understanding and experience of working with people with lived experience. Our team comprises of people who have worked in the frontline of human services. By having a deep understanding of how lived experience such as trauma, poverty and mental health issues amongst other things can impact on behaviour and needs, we are able to navigate the complexities of the human services sector and develop analysis and insights that are meaningful and effective.
