What's next for welfare-to-work /

by Brown, Jessica.

Publisher: St. Leonards, N.S.W. Centre for Independant Studies 2009Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Summary: In 2006, the Howard government?s Welfare to Work reforms placed new eligibility requirements on recipients of the Disability Support Pension (DSP) and Parenting Payment (PP), with the aim of reducing their numbers. Since then, the number of people on PP has dropped by about 20%: a remarkable result. However, the number of people on DSP has marginally increased. This suggests that DSP should be the focus of future welfare reform. ; Evaluating recent welfare reform is particularly important at a time of rising unemployment. When jobs are hard to find, the incentive for unemployed people to move to other welfare payments such as DSP grows. There is a real danger that rising unemployment could undo the recent gains in reducing long-term welfare dependence.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

The report ends with a concrete set of recommended actions for governments and their partnersAvailability: (2)
