Face the facts analyses emerging issues and upcoming trends in the youth sector, and presents information about these issues in several formats:
Briefings – an in-depth report that reveals the complex factors at play and presents a ‘lay of the land’ view of the key issues involved. We include the major players, relevant policy implications and indications of where this issue may go in the future.
Snapshots – a short, sharp overview of the issue’s major themes and critical points, combined with informative graphics and statistics.
Case studies - insightful reports on programs or services working in the Face the Fact topic area. These provide background information, analysis of what worked, and reflections on successes and areas for improvement.
Podcasts and webinars - interviews and discussions with experienced practitioners, recognised researchers, and young people provide the personal insights that are vital to round out understanding and knowledge of an issue.
