Income management and the future of Australia’s income support system - A stronger, fairer safety net?

Adequate income support is an entitlement. It should not be a tool for governments or public sector managers to grant, withhold or modify in an effort to achieve ‘outcomes’. Increasingly, it seems policy makers regard the right to income support as itself a cause of disadvantage and as an impediment to the efficient and effective pursuit of policy goals.

But I hope, more than anything else, the Inquiry has the opportunity to ask – even if implemented with probity – is this purchasing model the best way to ensure high quality services are provided to the unemployed and their families and the broader community?
