Australia has always turned to Labor for ideas.
All great Labor achievements begin with ideas, ambition and conversations. The Chifley Research Centre exists to start those conversations, bringing ideas and ambitions for a better Australia to life.
We’ve been hosting conversations and helping to bring ideas to life for a while.
In the last 12 months, we have done a lot of it.
With the help of people like you, we have celebrated Labor’s history. We have shared ideas. We have helped reformers create new policies. We have encouraged talented people. Together, we can help plan a better future for Australians and learn from others around the world.
Fifty percent of participants in the 2021/22 Chifley Development program are first-time Ministers and Assistant Ministers in the Albanese Federal Labor Government.
In 2020, the Chifley Report “Investing in Australia’s Early Childhood Infrastructure” argued for a new approach to early years education and childcare in Australia. This now a primary objective of the Albanese Government.
Labor is committed to an extra $5.4bn of childcare funding over four years, starting from July 2023, assistance that will make 96% of families better off.
We are proud of what we have done, but we know we can do more. We know that the next 12 months will be a decisive period for Australia success will take more than ambition and energy, it will also require money and resources. Can you chip in today to support us over the next 12 months?
With your support we will:
- We will develop progressive policy solutions to society’s biggest problems.
- We will continue to support a community of Labor Thinkers.
- We will honour Australian Labor’s history of achievements.
Help us nurture the Labor culture of ideas.
