Centre for Health and Social Research

Promoting community health and well-being through behavioural and social change

The Centre for Health and Social Research (CHaSR) is a dynamic and contemporary research centre specialising in social marketing. The Centre’s mission is to work with Australian communities to improve their health and wellbeing through research that has a direct and sustainable impact.

CHaSR provides social marketing advice and consultancy services to a range of organisations. These include: assistance with problem identification; formative research including systematic literature reviews; focus groups and interviews; surveys and content analysis. CHaSR also has extensive expertise in the development and implementation of social marketing interventions, including message development and testing; intervention delivery; and the implementation of evaluations. We also undertake health services development and evaluation projects, working in collaboration with funders and providers, focusing particularly on alcohol and other drugs, as well as inclusion of disadvantaged groups.
