Brotherhood of St Laurence response to the FaCS briefing on the AWT package.

by Brotherhood of St Laurence.

Publisher: Brotherhood of St Laurence (unpub.) 2002Description: PDF.Online Access: DOWNLOAD PDF Notes: February 2002Summary: This document provides a written response to the material distributed on the Australians Working Together package by the Department of Family and Community Services and the face to face briefing held on Monday 4 February 2002, in which an invitation was extended to the participants to provide comments in writing within two weeks. The submission is organised into six sections dealing with; Breaching, Unmet needs, Working credit, Personal Advisers, A fair go for mature age people, and Helping parents return to work. The Brotherhood of St Laurence supports the government’s aims to enable people to achieve independence, to enable more families to have jobs, and to have stronger, more robust communities. We also believe that the social security system needs to be overhauled. The changes which the government is proposing were set out in the Australians Working Together consultation paper ‘Listening to the Community’ and some were covered in more detail in the papers distributed prior to the meeting of 4 February. In general terms, we believe that while some of the changes proposed are very positive, some have the potential to be detrimental to people receiving social security payments.
