Welfare expenditure Australia /

by Australian Institute of Health and Welfare.

Publisher: Canberra, A.C.T. Australian Institute of Health and Welfare 1999 -Summary: Welfare expenditure broadly comprises spending on welfare services and cash payments. Welfare-related aims are also supported by tax expenditures or foregone revenue such as tax exemptions, offsets and deductions that can be claimed for certain activities or by particular classes of taxpayer. Expenditure on both welfare services and cash payments has been based on who the payments or services are targeted at, using the ABS Government Purpose Classification (GPC) for financial transactions for welfare services. The four target groups are families and children, older people, people with disability, and others (such as Indigenous Australians, widows, refugees and migrants). ; Cash payments (or benefits) include pensions, carer allowances and parenting payments which provide income support for older people, people with disability, people who provide care for others, families with children, and war veterans and their families. One-off payments such as those made as part of the Economic Security Strategy are also included. ; Welfare services comprise services for which payments are made, for example child care services, or home and community care services for older people or people with disability. Spending on welfare services includes employee expenses, program costs, concessions and fees that clients paid. Assistance provided to meet child care costs, such as the Child Care Benefit and Child Care Tax Rebate is included in welfare services. Welfare spending, defined according to the four GPC welfare services categories, does not include all government spending on welfare services programs. For example, some programs relevant to people with disability are in GPC categories of education, health or housing.Availability: No items available

What do Australia's non-profits really want? : The year of listening : the big picture issues, daily challenges and priorities of Australia's Third Sector /

by Gryst, Karen | Connecting Up Australia.

Publisher: Adelaide, S.A. Connecting Up Australia 2010Description: 31 p.:ill., col.Other title: The year of listening.Notes: A National Research Project 2009-10Summary: Connecting Up Australia commissioned the Listening Project to explore the Australian nonprofit (or Third Sector)'s emerging and persistent priorities in terms of operational and strategic challenges to inform possible responses, programs and services that address the issues that have emerged. When you take a close look at the nonprofit sector, the breadth of the task to 'listen to' a real cross section of the sector becomes apparent. It is a diverse sector estimated at approximately 600,000 organisations across our vast country. A year of case studies with a sample of different types and sizes of organisations in each state and territory in regional and metropolitan Australia was a significant undertaking. The response from the NGOs was "If this project can possibly help us improve, strengthen, gain support or resources to do more, I'll go that extra mile." ; Talking about the daily challenges of operations with these organisations, as well as the strategic 'big picture' challenges produced some unique issues but mainly strong themes and commonalities across sub-sectors and the sector as a whole. Many small community-based organisations highlighted the very same issues as larger national organisations. The project's case study data was then enriched further by a national online survey Connecting Up Australia conducted producing further quantitative statistics and qualitative cases, which supported and virtually mirrored the case study findings. ; The issues as expressed by research participants can be categorised under the following headings: ; Structure and resourcing of the sector ; Government funding ; Fundraising and alternative income development or social enterprise ; Human resources : volunteers, staff, board ; Research, capacity development and evaluationAvailability: No items available
