UnitingCare Australia's feedback to the Education and Employment Legislation Committee on the Senate Inquiry into the Family Assistance Legislation Amendment (Jobs for Families Child Care Package) Bill 2016, and the Social Services Legislation Amendment (Family Payments Structural Reform and Participation Measures) Bill 2016.

Published in Submissions

Thank you to the Committee for providing the opportunity to comment on this Bill.

As noted in UnitingCare Australia’s written submission, we’ve previously indicated support for reform of Social Services legislation when it is informed by a thorough analysis of the needs of individuals and families who access the welfare system. It’s paramount that the impacts of any reform are thoroughly and transparently assessed prior to changes being implemented that may result in adverse impacts on the most vulnerable members of our community.
