Uniting Communities seeks opportunities to work with researchers to improve our understanding of social issues. Uniting Communities ensures the conduct of any research it is invited to be a part of is ethical.  For this reason, the Uniting Communities Research Ethics Committee reviews research proposals to ensure that they are consistent with Uniting Communities organisational values and that they abide by the principles of autonomy, beneficence, non-maleficence and transparency.
