Content type
Media release

September 2018

The submission stated: ’While encouraging greater workforce participation is one way of addressing poverty and disadvantage the story around families and joblessness is not straightforward.’

A 'multifaceted approach to understanding "disadvantage" [is needed] to understand the intersections between different types of disadvantage. These complex issues require policy and service responses which are tailored to the experiences and aspirations of families themselves.'
