The AACP is an advocacy organisation, working to advance collaborative practice in the community. It promotes the use of collaborative practice to national and state governments, championing it as a way to change the nature and process of dispute resolution in Australia. In its educational capacity, it advances the use of collaborative practice in the community by equipping professionals to educate the community about the ways Collaborative Practice can benefit them.
The AACP also benefits its members by giving them access to resources to help them in their practice.
