Contribution to the 2011 Tax Forum

CSSA supports the creation of a more streamlined income support system that eliminates the distinction between pensions and allowances and which ensures an adequate minimum standard of living. In this regard, the proposed ACOSS model of a Minimum Standard of Living to cover basic living expenses, with supplements for disability, caring, housing rents and related matters provides a sound model. Income support recipients would be encouraged to search for work and to train through job search and training supplements that help with the costs of doing so.

The tempo of that debate will increase in the coming months, as our nation moves closer to a federal election in the second half of 2007. This research investigation completed by Emeritus Professor Tony Vinson on behalf of Jesuit Social Services and Catholic Social Services Australia offers documented evidence that can help ground that debate and take it beyond different political affiliations and perspectives.

A Piece of the Story

A Piece of the Story describes the personal records that are known to exist for people who resided in centres operated by organisations of the Catholic Church that provided residential care. The primary focus in establishing this directory was to assist indigenous people to re-establish their family and community links as a response to the Bringing them home report. The directory can also be accessed by anyone who was placed in residential care with organisations of the Catholic Church. This includes former child migrants and those who were placed in the care of Catholic organisations and subsequently fostered or adopted.
