Established in 1956, the HVRF's mission is to be the Centre of Excellence in community and regional research, with the aim of helping people make better decisions.
We operate on two main fronts:
- Unique regional research program
With the support of 150 Sponsors, the HVRF undertakes a program of critical social and economic research each year, which is unique in regional Australia. Results of our research are freely available.
- Client-based research services
Its well-deserved reputation for independent and sound research makes HVRF a popular choice for clients in government, universities, health services and business.
