Family & early years School to work Into & out of work Retirement & ageingSummary: The current global financial crisis and its likely impact on the Australian economy will have an acute impact on the most disadvantaged members of society, as well as pushing increased numbers of low and middle income earners to seek the services of welfare agencies. Even during the recent period of buoyant economic conditions, agencies were reporting growing demand, and the emergence of a new clientele of mid-stream wage earners facing severe financial stress. This has been mirrored by academic research into new indicators of disadvantage. Instability in the financial sector and its flow-on effects to the rest of the economy, can only exacerbate these problems, putting an even greater strain on what are already overstretched social services." -- Executive summaryAvailability: (1)
