Biography

Dr Rebekah Grace is passionate about understanding and addressing the support needs of children and families who are vulnerable. Her research has engaged with a broad range of families including those who have children with disabilities, families who have been identified as ‘at risk’ by the child protection system, and those who live in disadvantaged communities. Rebekah also has extensive experience working in partnership with Australian Aboriginal communities, and a strong commitment to walking alongside Indigenous people to acknowledge and address the profound inequities that exist as the result of past and current legislation and practice. 

Rebekah’s research most often employs a mixed-methods design and is multi-disciplinary in nature, spanning the health, psychology, disability and education fields. She is an advocate for the importance of child voice and participatory research methods. Rebekah takes a collaborative approach, partnering with leading international researchers and establishing multi-University teams in alliance with government departments and non-government service organisations. She is committed to conducting high quality research, and to the translation of that research so that it is meaningful in policy and practice contexts, and to those for whom it is intended to benefit.
