About

The Fairbridge Centre for Social Innovation, WA (CSI) is a not-for-profit research and evaluation centre based at Fairbridge Village in Western Australia’s Peel region. The CSI supports Fairbridge Western Australia Inc. (Fairbridge) by systematically researching and evaluating its programs and services. That work aims to provide Fairbridge, the broader community sector, and associated policy makers with a clear understanding of ‘what works’ to facilitate positive sustainable change in young peoples’ lives, ‘why it works’, and how not-for-profit programs and services can be improved. The CSI is also committed to building evaluation capacity across the broader community sector. As such, it works in partnership with other community agencies to provide evaluation training, support research and evaluation activity, facilitate access to research and evaluation resources, and use research and evaluation findings.
