Fixing Employment Services

Australia’s employment services system has evolved over the last 30 years. Despite this evolution, the experience of employment services by job seekers has remained largely unchanged.

Jobseekers, people with disabilities, families, friends, support organisations, community groups and policy makers are invited to contribute to the people driven process.

Personalising Centrelink and Welfare

Australia ‘s spending on welfare services is currently $154 billion and is expected to grow to $187 billion by 2019 and $225 billion by 3025.

Government attempts at ‘welfare reform’ over the last three decades have failed to reduce the number of Australians in receipt of welfare.

Suggestions for reform on the welfare system, its financial outlays, operations, processes and culture, are invited. Recipients of social security payments, people with disabilities, families, friends, support organisations, community groups and policy maker are invited to contribute to the people driven process.
