Social Investment Reform: Update

Reforming social investment and integrating services is a priority outcome for Logan Together and when it’s achieved, it will cement the sustainability of our work for generations to come.

 

Kids

Our work in our other project areas continually informs and guides the improvements that need to be made in the way social improvement programs are funded and managed. While the overall goal is a long term one, a number of sub-projects are getting some runs on the board in this space.

Logan Together recently joined Community Services Industry Alliance (CSIA), UnitingCare Queensland, Life Without Barriers, Key Assets and PeakCare Queensland to engage The Australian Centre for Social Innovation (TACSI) to support the design of an industry led commissioning approach for children and families in Queensland.

The aim of the project is to use a research and design process to examine how industry can take a lead role in the development of funding reforms in the out of home care (OOHC) space in Queensland.

A Project Steering Group has been established including representatives of UnitingCare Queensland, Life Without Barriers, Key Assets, Logan Together and PeakCare Queensland.  CSIA’s Chief Executive Officer Belinda Drew will chair the Committee.

Representatives of the Project Team from TACSI and CSIA will also attend Steering Group meetings to support the Group in its deliberations.

Key deliverables for the project have been signed off and interviews and analysis will commence late in September with results aiming to be available by the end of October.

We’ll keep you up to date on developments.
