The CEI team has been busy over the past few months, working on a range of projects across Australia, Singapore and the United Kingdom. In this newsletter you can read about some of the recent highlights - our work on improving employment outcomes in remote Australia, the range of exciting new evaluation projects we are leading for the NSW Department of Families and Community Services and our very recent win on an innovative project in the disability sector for the National Council of Social Services in Singapore. We’re thrilled to have reached the major milestone of having worked on over 100 projects for 45 clients since our inception!
