Transcript of "Fairer Victoria"

  1. 1. National Reform Agenda <ul><li>The National Reform Agenda is based on the proposition that future economic prosperity depends on: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>new investment to increase the skills and health of the population and therefore boost workforce participation; and </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>economic reforms to boost competition and reduce regulation. </li></ul></ul>
  2. 2. A Fairer Victoria <ul><li>A Fairer Victoria was launched in May 2005 as the Victorian Government’s long term action plan to tackle disadvantage and create opportunity for all Victorians </li></ul><ul><li>In 2006 A Fairer Victoria – Progress and Next Steps , was released </li></ul><ul><li>In May 2007 A Fairer Victoria – Building on Our Commitment , was released </li></ul><ul><ul><li>The core element of this framework is the combined emphasis on the provision of accessible and affordable universal services for all Victorians </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>is based around five principal policy objectives and 14 specific strategies for achieving them </li></ul></ul>
  3. 3. A Fairer Victoria cont… <ul><li>The framework tackles inequality and disadvantage by: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>emphasising early intervention and prevention; </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>matching local service delivery to individual needs </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>assisting communities to support individuals to overcome problems </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>making services easier to access, more responsive and more successful. </li></ul></ul>
  4. 4. A Fairer Victoria cont… <ul><li>Department of Planning & Community Development </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Neighbourhood House Coordination Funding (NHCP) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Adult, Community & Further Education (ACFE) </li></ul></ul>
  5. 5. A Fairer Victoria - Strategies <ul><li>ACCESS TO UNIVERSAL SERVICES </li></ul><ul><li>REDUCING BARRIERS TO OPPORTUNITY </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Strategy 5 Providing fairer access to services </li></ul></ul><ul><li>SUPPORT FOR DISADVANTAGED GROUPS </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Strategy 10 Creating new opportunities for people with a disability </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Strategy 11 Increasing support for mental health services </li></ul></ul><ul><li>SUPPORT FOR DISADVANTAGED PLACES </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Strategy 12 Building stronger communities </li></ul></ul><ul><li>MAKING IT EASIER TO WORK WITH GOVERNMENT </li></ul>
  6. 6. Providing fairer access to services <ul><li>reduce the barriers faced by some individuals or groups in accessing services and facilities that most Victorians take for granted. </li></ul>
  7. 7. Support for people with disabilities <ul><li>We will also make training and employment opportunities for people with a disability a higher priority and through implementation of State Disability Action Plans across government encourage more people with a disability to consider careers in the public and community sectors. </li></ul>
  8. 8. Further emphasis on skills and training <ul><li>Victoria’s economy is performing strongly and is steadily creating new opportunities for people to enter the workforce and to upgrade their skills in areas of high demand. However, as a consequence of the ageing of the population, we also need to increase workforce participation, increase skills in the existing workforce and boost skilled migration to meet our future needs. </li></ul>
  9. 9. Building Stronger Communities <ul><li>Achievements </li></ul><ul><ul><li>building 12 new and redeveloping 52 existing neighbourhood houses, and improving the computer facilities/Internet access of 56 houses </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>increasing payments to neighbourhood house coordinators and funding extra hours for services (increased NHCP funding received in 2007) </li></ul></ul>
  10. 10. Building Stronger Communities <ul><li>Future Directions </li></ul><ul><ul><li>We will provide $5 million to enable neighbourhood houses to upgrade, redevelop or co–locate, to provide information and communication technology and to purchase essential infrastructure. We will also invest </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>$4 million to fund equipment grants of up to $5000 for Adult Community Education (ACE) providers and the Centre for Adult Education and Adult Multicultural Education Services. </li></ul></ul>
