Associate Professor Anna Ziersch from the Southgate Institute was recently awarded a Channel 7 Research Foundation grant to examine ways to support health and wellbeing for children from migrant and refugee backgrounds with disability. With colleagues Dr Clemence Due (University of Adelaide, Flinders University) and Professor Sally Robinson (Flinders University) the team will conduct a mixed methods study of the experiences of migrant and refugee children with disability. The two-year study will be conducted in partnership with the Refugee Health Service, Federation of Ethnic Communities Council of Australia, Novita and Can:do 4 Kids and community members. It will involve interviews with children from migrant and refugee backgrounds with disability and their families, a survey of service providers, an analysis of relevant policy, and case studies of support initiatives. Key outcomes will be evidence-based recommendations on ways to support mental health and wellbeing for children and their families.
