VIC: Picking up the pieces

11.30 - 3.30pmQueen Victoria Women's Centre 210 Lonsdale St, Melbourne 3000

Theme: Conditionality of Social Security - Picking up the pieces (working title) The recent Federal Budget announcements regarding an increase in social security conditionality has raised concern for many advocates in the community sector. Research has shown that restricting access to social security does not enable greater workforce participation or wellbeing for individuals and families that rely on income support as their primary source of income. This overly individualised approach ignores the systemic barriers many people face in finding and retaining paid work. Further, the processes and systems created through this policy have been found to be inconsistent, punitive and damaging to longer term wellbeing, especially women. As a result, disadvantage becomes further entrenched, and others in the community are left to pick up the pieces This forum will invite those organisations and sectors that are ‘picking up the pieces’ of our inadequate social security system, including representatives from: • State Government, who respond with investment in community services, consumer affairs, and other programs; • business, whose customers/clients are not able to afford to pay for services including utilities, telephone and other credit products; and • unions and the community sector that support people marginalised by the welfare system through advocacy, programs and services.
