The Business of Welfare
A day of debate
29 August 2000

Business of WelfareAlmost every day a new call emerges from our political leaders for business to become more involved in a social coalition with government and the community to tackle social needs.

At the same time, more market based funding approaches by Governments are leading to restructuring in the community sector. Community organisations are being forced to look at new ways of obtaining and using resources. These trends are occurring in an environment where consumers of essential services continue to be asked to directly contribute greater amounts to the cost of providing such services.

So what does this all mean? What is the future path for community organisations as they are increasingly thought of as 'social entrepreneurs'. The Business of Welfare conference debated some of these issues.
