Cape York Institute for Policy and Leadership (2007)

From hand out to hand up: Cape York welfare reform project: design recommendations.

Cairns, QLD: Cape York Institute for Policy and Leadership

This report discusses the Cape York welfare reform project which aims to develop reformed incentives and appropriate supports at the community level to help with the restoration of social norms. The core principles of the project are:

  • all welfare should be conditional
  • further government investment in capability building is needed
  • incentives need to be fundamentally changed to encourage people.

Once the policies recommended by the Institute are supported, the project will initially be trialled in four communities on the Cape York Peninsula. If the trial is successful, the policy principles may be used to inform policy across the Cape York Peninsula and potentially other regions.

NSW Aboriginal mental health and well being policy 2006-2010.

This policy aims to address the relatively low levels of specialist mental health service utilisation in Aboriginal communities, despite a high level of need related to mental health and wellbeing. The policy is a framework to guide NSW Health and NSW Area Mental Health Services in the provision of culturally sensitive and appropriate mental health and social and emotional well being services to the Aboriginal community. A number of best practice interventions are also highlighted in the report.
