The Consumer Policy Research Centre launched in 2017 as an independent and not-for-profit centre. It will undertake research and policy development on consumer protection issues for the public benefit, and monitor grassroots consumer issues, focusing on disadvantaged consumers and regional and rural Victorians.
The Victorian Government has committed $4.95 million of funding over four and a half years to the Centre, to research issues important to Victorian consumers and inform the development of policy and services. The Centre has engaged widely to formulate its research agenda and will shortly commence its research program.
