The welfare system provides a vital safety net for hundreds of thousands of disadvantaged Australian families.

The panellists will discuss these issues along with new policies and programs to promote self-sufficiency among families.

Dr Tim Reddel, Group Manager, Policy Office, Department of Social Services

Professor Peter Whiteford, Crawford School of Public Policy, The Australian National University
