As part of APW, Melbourne City Mission, the Council for Single Mothers and their Children, and RMIT Public Relations Students will be producing a short video sharing stories about single mothers from the perspectives of their children. We know that children in single parent families are three times more likely to be living in poverty than children in couple families, but in this video we would like to share both the challenges and joys of single mother and children households.

WA: Policy Lab WA: One Day Taster

9:30am-3pm256 Adelaide Terrace, Perth 6000

Poverty is a wicked social problem, impacted by a multitude of personal, community and systemic factors. Effectively responding to the problem requires some innovative policy settings. Join the WA Anti-Poverty Week Steering group, WA Alliance to End Homelessness and the Department of Communities as we use a Design-led approach to consider policy responses to WA Homelessness, one of our most intense forms of Poverty. This one day event brings together players from Government, NFP’s and Business to understand the policy landscape of the homelessness system and to experiment with different ways that we can take a more design-led approach to forming possible policy responses. Using a process borrowed (and adapted) from the UK Government’s Policy Lab, facilitated by some of Western Australia’s leading Social Designers, we hope to give attendees a taste of a rapid experience of design-led policy development, and maybe surface important insights to guide our collective work in developing policy for some of Australia’s most vulnerable people.

9:30am-4:30pmThe Rendezvous Hotel, 328 Flinders St, Melbourne, VIC 3000

The CISVic conference The Poverty Problem; whose fault is it anyway? will explore the poverty problem & how individuals & agencies can work to bring about change. Our data has shown that the complexity & need of our service users rises each year – with a marked increase in people seeking emergency relief over the last financial year. It is CISVic’s belief that it is imperative that the narrative reflects that poverty is a society-wide issue, rather than the fault of individuals. Through presentations & workshops, conference participants will develop a deeper understanding of this issue.

Did you know that 1 in 6 consumers struggle with Credit Card debt? Why not beat the debt trap by paying cash only this October. Using cash gives space and slows down our decisions on the purchases we make and helps us become more aware of the dollars we spend.
