2017-18 Pre-Budget Submission

UnitingCare Australia facilitates social investment through advocating for policies and services that strengthen people’s capacities to participate in society to their full potential. We believe that economic policies should similarly reflect this focus on social investment to achieve a strong and thriving Australia.

Well developed social investment policy to support older people, children and families, jobseekers, people from diverse backgrounds, people with disability and people at risk of homelessness, benefits the entire community.

We acknowledge that our country currently faces economic challenges, but believe the economy needs to have capacity to support strong social investment should be a Government priority. We believe that maintaining this capacity can be achieved through improving Government revenue without adversely impacting those in need.
