Indigenous Affairs

Case Studies :

Policy/Program Evaluation
Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet – Australian Government

Our analysis and consultation with Indigenous communities identified ways to improve value for money of welfare spending through card based income management. Our report was the first of its kind and underpinned the Government’s design of an income management regime that has now been rolled out to many Indigenous and other disadvantaged communities.

NSW North Coast Institute of TAFE
