  • Home » Media Releases » Providing beÆ©er aged care for older Australians 13 May 2014 The AbboÆ© Government is delivering on its commitment to deliver beÆ©er services for older Australians and greater certainty for providers. The Budget is part of the Government’s Economic AcƟon Strategy to build a strong, prosperous economy and a safe, secure Australia. The AbboÆ© Government is delivering support to provide older Australians with beÆ©er choices and improved access to the type of services which will enable them to conƟnue to live acƟve and healthy lives. The Government will improve the way home care places are allocated through the Aged Care Approvals Round to beÆ©er meet community demand and give providers more certainty. The changes will ensure home care places can be released more quickly, and provide a more consistent, evenly spread and predictable number of places each year. This will help to beÆ©er meet the needs of older Australians, who want to stay in their own homes, and give home care providers more certainty so that they can beÆ©er plan for the long term. The AbboÆ© Government is honouring our commitment to invest in Australia’s aged care workforce by puÆ«ng back into the general pool of aged care funding the $1.5 billion allocated to the workforce compact. We have consulted with key stakeholders to ensure the funding is distributed in a way that is more flexible and beÆ©er targeted, with minimal regulatory burden and without jeopardising the viability of aged care faciliƟes. In addiƟon, payments through the Viability Supplement to eligible regional, rural and remote providers will increase by 20 per cent from 1 July 2014, for all eligible Commonwealth funded residenƟal and home care providers, MulƟ‐Purpose Services and services funded through the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Flexible Aged Care Program. The Government will also implement the aged care reforms to help deliver a range of services that will provide more choices for people to stay at home longer, as well as providing more aged care homes and support for homes in regional, rural and remote areas. The Government will remove the aged care Payroll Tax Supplement for residenƟal aged care providers. This will assist the Government to repair the Budget. The Government is making decisions that repair the Budget, strengthen the economy and prepare Australia for the long term challenges before us.

  • Home » Media Releases » Delivering on our commitment to build stronger relaƟonships 13 May 2014 The AbboÆ© Government is honouring its elecƟon commitment to provide Australian couples with access to relaƟonship educaƟon and counselling services. The commitments we made at the elecƟon were fully funded, ensuring no addiƟonal pressure on the Budget. The Stronger RelaƟonships trial will provide up to 100,000 couples with $200 towards relaƟonship educaƟon or counselling. From July, couples will be able to register online for the subsidy, which can be used at an approved not‐for‐profit provider of their choice. Couples will be able to access a relaƟonships educator to work through key issues such as parenƟng, financial management and improving communicaƟon. Couples can also use the counselling assistance to help them through any problems they may be experiencing in their relaƟonship. The Stronger RelaƟonships trial will be open to all couples in a commiÆ©ed relaƟonship, including engaged, married, de‐facto and same‐sex couples. Beyond the staggering economic cost is the personal trauma which has a significant impact on the health, educaƟonal opportuniƟes and wellbeing of families and communiƟes. We know that invesƟng in marriage and relaƟonship educaƟon and counselling can strengthen relaƟonships and help improve personal and family wellbeing. This trial will cost less than one per cent of the cost of divorce each year—a relaƟvely small investment considering the enormous social and economic costs of relaƟonship and family breakdown. © Commonwealth of Australia 2014 Accessibility   Privacy statement Search   HOME   MEDIA RELEASES   SPEECHES   TRANSCRIPTS   EDITORIALS   BIOGRAPHY   CONTACT Listen Delivering on our commitment to build stronger relationships | The H... http://kevinandrews.dss.gov.au/media-releases/85

  • Home » Media Releases » Income Management helping families in West Australia 1 March 2014 A review released today has found Income Management is changing the lives of vulnerable West Australian families. Minister for Social Services, Kevin Andrews, and West Australian Minister for Child ProtecƟon, Helen Morton, have welcomed the findings of A Review of Child ProtecƟon Income Management in Western Australia. “This review looked at people in Perth and the Kimberley region, who had been referred to Income Management by child protecƟon authoriƟes and the impact it’s had on their lives,” Mr Andrews said. “I am pleased to say many families told us Income Management helped them manage household budgets, keep uƟliƟes connected and assisted in clearing debts. “By improving their housing situaƟon, families were able to address other issues such as substance abuse and beÆ©er manage relaƟonships.” Ms Morton said the review was the second posiƟve evaluaƟon of income management as a child protecƟon measure, which has broader benefits for whole communiƟes. “Service providers reported income management had reduced alcohol and substance misuse and the negaƟve effects of anƟ‐social behaviour and violence,” Ms Morton said. “Given the success of this iniƟaƟve to date I am keen to explore opportuniƟes to expand it to the rest of the state,” she said.

  • Home » Media Releases » Support for income management in Ceduna 16 February 2014 Joint Media Release with: Minister for Indigenous Affairs Nigel Scullion Minister for Social Services Kevin Andrews and Minister for Indigenous Affairs, Nigel Scullion, have welcomed the results of a survey which shows community support for income management in the Ceduna area of South Australia. Mr Andrews said those surveyed believed income management would bring many benefits to the region. “The majority of parƟcipants said income management would help improve diet and health, ensure children are beÆ©er looked aŌer, increase family stability, and improve people’s ability to work and get an educaƟon or training,” Mr Andrews said. “This was coupled with a high level of concern about social problems such as the neglect of children, family instability and the perceived waste of money on alcohol consumpƟon, drug use and gambling.  “In addiƟon, people in this area have repeatedly called for income management to be introduced to help combat alcohol misuse, gambling, child safety issues, and financial exploitaƟon. “This is a good starƟng point, and the further consultaƟon the Government is doing will help us to determine whether income management is appropriate for the Ceduna area, and if so, which model would be best,” Mr Andrews said. The study, conducted by NinƟ One in August 2013, involved Aboriginal Community Researchers who spoke to 204 residents of the Ceduna, Koonibba, Scotdesco, Yalata and Oak Valley communiƟes.  Senator Scullion said he visited the area late last year with local federal MP Rowan Ramsey and community leaders sent the strong message that they believe income management can help direct spending away from alcohol, gambling and tobacco to essenƟals such as food, clothing, rent and uƟliƟes. “It’s important that the community is behind income management to ensure it succeeds in improving living standards,” Senator Scullion said. “Income management is making a posiƟve difference to the lives of people in the Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara Lands, Laverton and the Ngaanyatjarra Lands, where the majority of parƟcipants have volunteered for income management.” Further consultaƟons will be held in Ceduna, Scotdesco, Yalata and Oak Valley, to allow residents to have their say on income Search   HOME   MEDIA RELEASES   SPEECHES   TRANSCRIPTS   EDITORIALS   BIOGRAPHY   CONTACT Listen Support for income management in Ceduna | The

Mr Andrews says the increases keep the payments in line with the Consumer Price Index. “The Australian Government is pleased to be able to provide extra support to nearly one million Australians,” Mr Andrews said. “More than 350,000 students and young jobseekers receiving Youth Allowance will get an increase of between $7.70 and $18.30 a fortnight. “Around 49,000 students will get a boost to their Austudy payments ranging from $13.90 to $18.30 a fortnight. “More than half a million people with caring responsibiliƟes who receive a Carer Allowance will receive an extra $2.80 a fortnight, liŌing the basic rate to $118.20 a fortnight. “People with a disability aged under 21 years receiving the Disability Support Pension will get increases of between $12.50 and $18.80 a fortnight. “We’ve also raised certain personal income limits to keep them in line with increases in the Consumer Price Index,” he said.
