Participation support for a more equitable society : final report of the Reference Group on Welfare Reform by Reference Group on Welfare Reform (Australia)( Book )
1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 45 libraries worldwide
The Government wishes to provide ways of assisting people who are disadvantaged that strike a better balance between its ongoing commitment to maintain a strong safety net and its responsibility to develop policies and strategies allowing all Australians to participate fully in the workforce where they are able. In this context, the Government is concerned that there is an increasing reliance by Australians on welfare, with around one in five people of workforce age on income support payments. Six principles have been identified in order to guide the reform required in this area: (a) Maintaining equity, transparency and sustainability; (b) establishing better incentives for people receiving social security payments, so that work, education and training are rewarded; (c) creating greater opportunities for people to increase self-reliance and capacity building, rather than merely providing a passive safety net; (d) expecting people on income support to help themselves and contribute to society through increased social and economic participation in a framework of Mutual Obligation; (e) providing choices and support for individuals and families with more tailored assistance that focuses on prevention and early intervention; and (f) maintaining the Government's disciplined approach to fiscal policy. To ensure a process of consultation with the community, the Government has established a Reference Group comprised of representatives from the community sector, business, academia and government. The Group will provide advice to enable the Government to develop a comprehensive Green Paper on welfare reform. The Reference Group has the following terms of reference: (a) Adopting the reform principles established by the Government to provide advice on: (i) options for change to income support arrangements aimed at preventing and reducing welfare dependency by those of workforce age; and (ii) other options relating to the provision of associated services, including employment, education and training, that would assist in preventing and reducing welfare dependency; (b) in providing this advice the Reference Group will give particular consideration to: (i) the broader application of Mutual Obligation; (ii) demographic changes; (iii) sustainablity of the current system; (iv) the particular incentive effects associated with the design of social security payments for people of workforce age; and (v) international best practice; (c) in framing its advice the Reference Group will draw on community input and call for submissions from interest groups and the broader community
