The Centre for Social Impact (CSI) is working with Community Mental Health Australia as an evaluation partner for the Assisting Communities through Direct Connection (ACDC) project.
CSI is a collaboration of three universities: the University of Western Australia (UWA), the University of New South Wales (UNSW) and Swinburne University of Technology (Swinburne). Together, CSI aims to catalyse positive social change, to enable others to achieve social impact. They do this through transformational research that is rigorous and purpose-driven, and through working with people, communities and organisations to grow their capabilities.
