  • interconnecting community, government, and researcher knowledge
  • co-producing strategies to catalyse action and drive positive change
  •  informing practice, policy and research
  • advancing sustainable, healthy and more inclusive communities

How we work

Since our inception, we have built a reputation of quality through the timely and rigorous completion of projects and services, and efficient grant management. As a result, we attract support from a range of prominent international funders, institutional partners, industry, and civil society.

Organizational management and project implementation are overseen by four directors who are nationally and internationally recognized in their respective fields.

SLF is audited by an external auditor and has an uninterrupted record of unqualified audit outcomes.
