The mission of the home economics profession in Australia is to educate, inform, and to act as an advocate to government, industry and the community for families and households, so that individuals can make informed choices in order to enhance their everyday living.
HEIA was incorporated in 1994 as the peak professional body for home economics in Australia. The mission and focus of the profession are reflected in the HEIA logo. The concentric circles symbolise the family unit within the community and the world as a whole. Through the centre runs the flame of the lamp of learning.
