Anti-Poverty Week Forum 20 October: Picking up the Pieces – The fallout of welfare reform

Are welfare reforms causing more harm than good? 

20 October 2017,  11:30am – 3:30pm


Guest speakers:

Mr Daniel Mulino MLC (Parliamentary Secretary for Treasury and Finance)
Dr Cassandra Goldie (CEO, ACOSS)
Ciara Sterling (Head of Community Inclusion, Yarra Valley Water)
David Tennant (CEO, FamilyCare)

With special video presentation from leading UK welfare researcher Peter Dwyer (Professor of Social Policy, University of York)


Research shows that restricting access to social security does not enable greater workforce participation or wellbeing but further entrenches disadvantage, especially for women. 

Join the discussion on the consequences of increased social security conditionality and what needs to be done to pick up the pieces and disrupt cycles of disadvantage.
