Public policy and the non-government welfare sector
MetadataShow full item record
This is a working paper for a larger report "Non-government welfare and the state". From the earliest days in colonial Australia 'charitable organisations' have been part of the social welfare system. Also from the earliest days these organisations have depended, in varying degrees, on public funds. The Commonwealth Task Force on Co-ordination in Welfare and Health (Bailey Report, Vol.2, p.32) estimated that there were between 15,000 and 60,000 organisations and agencies in Australia active in welfare/health/community development.
